A Convoy of Hope Community Event is a united act of compassion that touches families in desperate need. Local churches, businesses, community service and health organizations partner with us to provide guests with groceries, medical and dental screenings, prayer, haircuts, lunch, veteran services, music, a kid’s carnival, children’s shoes, job and career services, community services, family portraits, and more — at no charge to guests. Approximately $1,000,000 worth of goods and services are provided to the 5,000-10,000 Guests of Honor who attend each event.
We are privileged to be a part of the event this year in East St. Louis on July 22 at the Jackie Joyner Kersee Foundation. Check out the information and sign-up to volunteer on their website: www.convoyofhope.org/outreach/eaststlouis/
