Review for Convoy of Hope, Springfield, MO, USA
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.
