SPRINGFIELD, MO — SEPTEMBER 22, 2023 — On September 21, Convoy of Hope held a grand opening and official dedication for its new 70,000-square-foot Regional Distribution Center (RDC) in Sacramento. Convoy of Hope will utilize the new Sacramento location to more quickly and efficiently deliver relief supplies to locations along and near the West Coast. It is already stocked with essential supplies, including food, water, paper goods and cleaning supplies.
“From this place, hope will spread across Sacramento, across the West Coast and around the world,” Convoy of Hope founder and president Hal Donaldson said at the dedication ceremony. “Every can of soup, every box of cereal that leaves this Regional Distribution Center, will carry with it a promise of hope.”
This is the very first RDC for Convoy of Hope in what could be a series of strategically placed distribution centers. Even before its grand opening, Convoy sent essential relief supplies from the Sacramento RDC to help survivors of wildfires in Maui, Washington state and Canada.
The Sacramento RDC represents a homecoming of sorts. Convoy of Hope was first established in Northern California in 1994.
