I helped out with a city-wide Convoy of Hope outreach event last year. It was amazing to see the breadth of hope that was given to the community. From groceries to hair cuts to shoes to clothing to ears to listen to people's stories and shoulders to cry on....COH is the real deal.

I served as a volunteer at a Convoy of Hope outreach in Dallas. It was an amazing experience as we saw thousands of people receive assistance. Not only were tons of groceries given away, the outreach included medical assistance, free haircuts, and so much more. I highly recommend this organization and am happy to support it.

Convoy of Hope came and distributed food and emergency supplies after Hurricane Sandy. The food and supplies brought were exactly what was needed, and the distribution system was organized and efficient.

Convoy of Hope delivered more that we could ever have imagined to our community outreach event. We were able to impact our community in such a greater way because of CoH. The truck driver was the highlight of my day that particular day! He was so kind, and we got to pray for him before he left. We are forever greatful for Convoy of Hope and can't wait to work with them in the future.

I love that Convoy is always amongst the first responders to not only national disasters, but world wide epidemics & vast devastation. I have had the opportunity to pack meals for families in poverty, seeds for families to plant & create a solid foundation for their kids, to giving financially towards their efforts to rebuild communities destroyed by tornadoes. Convoy of Hope lives up to their name. They give hope to the hurting & it's not just a hand out, but a hand up to those they serve!

We started volunteering a few years back on Tuesday nights helping to sort food. I would being my whole family, wanting my children to understand how lucky they are to not worry about the source of their food, but also to help those who aren't so lucky. The children's schedule got us away from that, but last Saturday my daughter and I were able to help with the 5k race. We had a wonderful time and met some great people.

Team member of the first Convoy of Hope outreach in Brazil. It was an amazing experience demonstrating to the locals that with some planning and able volunteers it is easy to put an awesome community outreach together that not only blesses hundreds of people with free food but allows for the opportunity to present the gospel and to love on people. A trip I will always remember!

Also participated in an outreach in Jamaica and a couple of local community outreaches.

Convoy of Hope is everywhere! From their 3rd world feeding initiatives, to disaster relief aid, to community building, I have seen my donations help literally thousands of people. They were there after the Joplin tornado and are still there rebuilding over 2 years afterwards. There is not a natural disaster that Convoy of Hope isn't involved. I proud to support them!

Convoy of Hope was so well organized! We were continually reminded that the people coming were our "guests of honor" and should be treated as such. That phrase kept ringing in my head as I served and hopefully this made me a much better volunteer. I love that they are so quick to the scene of a tragedy. As a victim of a tragedy before Convoy of Hope was founded, I can see what a blessing this group is to those in need!

I had the opportunity to volunteer with Convoy of Hope a week after the tornado hit Joplin. They were very organized. They mobilized quickly. They provided for the needs of the people. It was a life-changing experience. I would definitely volunteer again with Convoy of Hope.

I volunteered with the Convoy of Hope Summer Internship program a few years ago and had a great experience. I learned about the impact of service and how to think critically about a plan to serve. Some programs are about giving handouts. Convoy taught me about sustainability and empowerment. They were also intentional about identifying what the community perceived as a need (not just what outsiders think is needed). Convoy worked directly with local churches to connect people, instead of providing a one-time need.

I was personally challenged to grow as a person of faith, to be active in the community, and to give strategically. I will never forget seeing 3rd world poverty firsthand, and my internship with Convoy of Hope gave me this opportunity. Although it's been over 4 years, I still think of my Summer with Convoy often and how it changed me. I currently work in a community agency to combat poverty, in part as a result of this opportunity to serve!

I would love to work for Convoy Of Hope. I have seen them in action numerous times. Not only in the 'big' disasters, but in the local community. I live in Springfield MO, where their home distribution center is. I was also very involved with volunteering with my church in Joplin after that horrific tornado in 2011! One of the first big trucks seen parked on Rangelne Rd. was Convoy's, already set up and helping victims who had lost everything. Several people that work there go to the same church I do(James River Church) and I know they have a true heart for missions and meeting people's needs. Convoy of Hope truly reflects the heart of our Savior!!!

I have volunteered with Convoy of Hope on several occasions. Each time I am struck with the compassion and devotion that comes from this organization. Convoy of Hope is made up of individuals who have a true passion for serving, not only those in our community, but people around the world as well. As a volunteer, I knew exactly what my efforts were supporting and I felt the appreciation that came from the people at Convoy of Hope. This is an amazing nonprofit organization and I am so proud of all of the wonderful blessings they have brought to people from every walk of life all over the world!

I heard of Convoy of Hope many months ago through our church and decided this would be an awesome way for our family to get involved. My youngest two daughters and I decided to volunteer for the Coeurd'Alene event. We showed up nice and early and spent about an hour packing about 5000 bags with groceries. We were the ones who carried the bags to the tables so we worked up a good sweat while having fun. My youngest daughter went off to volunteer at the kids tent and my other daughter and I worked in the shoe tent. I have never seen so many happy children with new shoes in my life. Being able to meet their needs in such a basic way while showing the love of Christ was a real blessing to me. We even had bags of food and some shoes left over to donate to our local food bank and charities, something that is very needed around here. It was a blast to be a part of from the night before volunteer rally with excellent music to the cleaning up the next day. We will most definitely be involved again if it comes to our area.

I am a disaster case manager working with survivors of the May 2013 Oklahoma disasters. Convoy of Hope has been an incredible partner in meeting the needs of the people of Oklahoma. All of our clients love being served by the Convoy of Hope disaster teams and their contractors. Because of Convoy of Hope so many people who needed home repairs, items, or complete rebuilds were given hope. The Convoy team is compassionate and genuine in the kindness and love they show others. When they do a project they don't just take care of people's physical needs, but they feed then spiritually and emotionally. Thank you for all you do!

I was honored to come alongside Convoy of Hope in Long Island this past summer! Their team is purposeful in what they do and passionate in who they care for. It was amazing to be part of a winning team that showed real love to so many people through a job fair, giving out groceries, praying for those in need, and blessing children in the Kids Zone with inflatables and many other games.

This organization has help our ministry a lot, their generosity and their dedication to help the poor and to feed the hungry children around the world is beyond expectation, Personally Our church membership have grown in numbers and the children are very excited to go to school everyday because their stomach are full and not hungry, compared to the past when these children we're not yet enrolled in the feeding program they only go to school twice or once a week and sometime they don't go to school for the whole week just for them to look for food to eat in exchange for their education.
CONVOY of HOPE Philippines's response also during the calamity/disaster is superb, if there's any one who comes first, its the convoy of hope Philippines, before any other NGOs & Government relief comes, The CONVOY of HOPE Philippines have already distributed relief to the need people who are victim of the disaster.

Thank God for CONVOY of HOPE, May God bless this org. more and more and all those donors and volunteers, in deed your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

I volunteered at a local event. I helped setup and take down as well as a non-profit booth giving info out. This group is totally organized and friendly. People attending didn't just get food, but haircuts manicures, hygiene items, and access to other community organizations. The kids had playtime and balloons. Also for those in need of prayer there is a prayer tent with area ministers and individuals who pray over needs. Great organization to volunteer for and to support with funds!

When at the World Conference for the Assemblies of God as a band member backing the 1000 voice Teen Challenge choir in the year 2000, I saw the Convoy of Hope semi truck in the RCA Dome. I've been impressed with the integrity and scope of all that Convoy of Hope has done over the years. And now the Feed One Missions outreach is impacting lives in impoverished areas. We continue to support this God ordained ministry and are expecting even greater things to come from this great outreach.

Just got back to Springfield from Haiti yesterday. Very eye opening trip! Saw two orphanages, a school and the agricultural plots. Convoy is helping that country and many others become self sufficient and learn about Christ. 42 orphanages and 180,000 fed a day with 9O% of the donation going into the community. Amazing.

Convoy of Hope is a top-rate compassion organization that my husband and I have supported for yrs. They feed children, train families to grow/make their own crops/goods to be self-sufficient, provide simple means for clean water, are first responders for natural disasters and join with local US cities to reach out and offer a "Day of Hope" to the needy and hurting. Whether in the States or abroad, Convoy of Hope is an incredible organization!

I have been a high school teacher for over 19 years. 16 of those years I have served as faculty advisor for Key Club, a volunteer service club sponsored by Kiwanis. I also served as an adult member of the MO-ARK District Board of Key Club International for 10 of those years. I have led students in many service projects, but our service during a Convoy outreach in Springfield, MO back in 2004 stands out as one of my favorite and most memorable. It was a real joy to carry groceries out to people's car and visit with them along the way and to see the tremendous difference Convoy was making with just this one event. My wife now works for Convoy and is excited to go to work each day. The work atmosphere is so pleasant and she loves her coworkers. What a class act and what a blessing Convoy of Hope is to so many people!

Convoy of Hope seems to be everywhere that people are in desperate need! They are a right on time group, not a "we will access this situation, have a board meeting and then maybe decide to help" kind of group.
I have been a victim of a tornado and these kind of people often need immediate help. I have also read Relentless and have become informed on the background and huge hearts of the founders. GOD BLESS CONVOY OF HOPE, Jan Eoff

Our Church, Victory Lighthouse Assembly of God, has supported Convoy of Hope for a number of years now, and have been very pleased with their contribution in areas of disasters. They are usually the first, or one of the first on site when these disasters hit. We keep up with what they are doing, and are behind them 100%.
