Convoy of Hope
March 16, 2012
Had not heard of Convoy of Hope until I went to help with disaster relief after the tornado outbreak in southern Indiana on March 2, 2012. I have worked disaster relief after floods in Missouri and Indiana, after tornadoes in Wisconsin and Indiana, and the Haiti earthquake. I was impressed with their organization of volunteers, their compassion for those affected by the tornadoes, and their down-to-earth interaction with all those they came into contact with. They took "work orders" from those who needed help, matched them with teams to accomplish the task, sent out meals to both workers and residents, and helped maintain a free "store" to get needed items directly into the hands of those in need. I will definitely be volunteering with this organization again.

Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
More visible name tags for those coming in with the team. Also possibly even the paper stick-on ones for on-scene volunteers since they are often paired with other volunteers who don't know each other.
