SPRINGFIELD, MO — April 16, 2020 — Churchome, a thriving church community committed to bringing the story of Jesus to every home, donated $1 million to Convoy of Hope’s COVID-19 response. The funds will provide meals to meet the immediate needs of people across the United States affected by the coronavirus.
In recent weeks, Convoy of Hope has delivered more than 7 million meals as part of its “10 Million Meal” initiative. “Because of Churchome’s generosity,” said Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope, “we’re going to shoot past our initial 10 million meal goal and provide tangible help to many more people.”
“What we know for certain is that there is a real need for food right now, for people in our communities and across the country,” said David Kroll, CEO of Churchome. “We are incredibly excited to partner with Convoy of Hope to meet that real need. Their vision to give away 10 million meals during this pandemic is going to make a huge impact, and it is our privilege to partner with them to provide 1 million of those meals.”
“We are incredibly grateful to Churchome and leaders like Judah and Chelsea Smith for their compassion and partnership,” said Donaldson. “Their desire to serve people aligns with our mission to feed those who are most vulnerable during these challenging times.”
