Convoy of Hope headed to Maryland for $1 million outreach event

Convoy of Hope, the faith based humanitarian organization, is hosting a community outreach on June 1 at the Frederick Fairgrounds.

Partnering with local businesses, churches and other nonprofits, the event is an effort to assist the poor and the suffering. The community in Frederick will provide over $1 million in goods and services. Food, clothing, job counseling, dental check-ups, haircuts, family portraits and a kids carnival are all part of the schedule.

“We’ll be treating hurting neighbors as honored guests to a ‘poverty-free day’ by providing free food and groceries as well as introducing them to local resources for long-term solutions to poverty,” says Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope.

“I’m so thankful for all of these people who are here to help my family,” said an honored guest at a recent outreach event. “My sons have new shoes on their feet! There’s a lot of people like my family that need this kind of support.”

Convoy of Hope is also working with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) and Plum Organics at the outreach. NBCF will be providing education, support and early detection services to underserved women in the community. Plum Organics will provide guests with their organic baby, toddler and child food products.

Based on the description from their website, Convoy of Hope helps millions of “people throughout the world through international children’s feeding initiatives, community outreaches, disaster response and partner resourcing.”
