CONVOY OF HOPE
March 9, 2012

I have seen & heard of Convoy of Hope over the past decade, but as a Joplin resident, seeing their response to our disaster was eye opening. I've helped with Convoy of Hope distribute food to the needy in Fontana, CA. But seeing their disaster response, was truly moving. They were one of the first charities on the scene within hours of the devastation. They were well organized & were able to mobilize quickly & efficiently to help not only feed people, but clothe people, help in the recovery process & stayed on with the rebuilding process. Its been 10 months since the tornado & I still see Convoy of Hope big rigs rolling through town as well as Convoy of Hope affiliated personnel still helping to pick up debris. As a donor, I'm happy that they give timely communication with updates on projects & events. Thought Convoy of Hope was a good organization prior to the tornado & seeing their operation up close & personal gave me an even greater appreciation for all they do. Excellent organization.
