SPRINGFIELD, Mo., April 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Convoy of Hope has distributed more than 10 million meals to hundreds of hard hit communities across the nation. But the organization plans to keep its fleet of tractor-trailers rolling to meet a growing demand for food and emergency supplies.
"At our distribution sites, the line of cars is often stretching 2 miles," said Hal Donaldson, Convoy of Hope president. "Lots of people have lost their jobs, and children don't have access to school lunch programs. We're hearing heart-wrenching stories and seeing lots of desperate faces."
Thanks to the generosity of corporations, churches and individuals, many families are receiving much needed help, Donaldson said. "This is a united act of compassion, where groups and businesses are more concerned about helping people than they are receiving credit or making an extra buck. We're seeing compassion in action on a large scale."
Convoy of Hope is a faith-based, nonprofit organization with a driving passion to feed the world through children's feeding initiatives, community outreaches and disaster response. Visit convoyofhope.org to donate to their response.
