The Assembly of God-related organization in the U.S. has delivered millions of meals in the nation and other countries.
This is the Convoy of Hope organization, linked to the Assembly of God in the USA, which distributed over 40 million meals in more than 40 states in the country.
Together, the organization delivered 12 million meals to more than 700 communities around the world in response to the new COVID-19 pandemic.
Convoy of Hope, based in Springfield, Missouri, has worked to ensure that children and families receive food, water and emergency supplies.
“We must continue. This is no time to stop. Millions of people still need our help to get through this crisis,” says Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope.
Other organizations are joining the cause
Currently, the Pittsburgh Steelers football team, the National Association of Stock Car Races (NASCAR) and other groups have joined with Convoy of Hope to distribute food to thousands of families in the United States.
“This is a united act of compassion,” says Donaldson.
“Businesses, churches and civic groups are coming together to make sure people are fed,” he added.
In a recent effort in Adel, Georgia, Convoy of Hope volunteers and partners have delivered food and household supplies to more than 800 people.
Bethany Burrows, one of the volunteers, said, “Some families have traveled 40 kilometers in search of the donations. The lines of cars stretched out to three kilometers during the day.
