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!

I was amazed at the amount of help Convoy of Hope brought to our Denver community. Literally hundreds of people turned out and no one was turned away! I was (and still am) proud of what was accomplished for the people in need. THIS is what Christianity is all about!!!

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.

This was by far the most amazing experience of my life! Volunteered for the Las Cruces,NM 2013 Convoy and I can't wait to do it again. I spent 8 hours in the rain and 34 degree weather and I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

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!

It was a great priviledge to serve as a volunteer in Ceuta,Spain showing the love of God among muslims and the Lord 's mercies fell in special way showing through Convoy of Hope in His love and service, this dry place for the first time a group of people cutting hair,manicures,children games and free Hamburgers and a bag of food for all..many muslims said that the Radical muslims should see how the love of God is express throgh the Christians, while they just spend the money in His love and service, arms, we gave them everything Free....even Salvation is Free...

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

Convoy of Hope is an amazing organization. I recently had the privilege of volunteering with them at a community event and the organization, care, and love put into it was awesome. They make a dollar go much further than any one person could ever hope too. I love them.

I've helped with a Convoy Of Hope outreach. I was very pleased to be a part of such a blessing to so many. Everyone involved was very friendly and genuinely concerned with the needs of the guests who came to the event.

I have volunteered with Convoy of Hope multiple times and have loved every minute of it. They strive to treat all volunteers and guests with respect and generosity. The hope that they bring is unprecedented and I am privileged to be a part of their movement. I love the way they treat their guests and how they honor them. There are SO many ways to get involved with Convoy. I cannot wait to volunteer with them again.
