Convoy of Hope Holds Community Event in Sioux City

USA Reported by Convoy of Hope

Convoy of Hope recently brought together 1,014 volunteers from 85 different churches and organizations in Sioux City, South Dakota. Together, they served 5,774 Guests of Honor with medical services, career services, haircuts, family portraits, groceries, family fun, and more.

Some of the ripples from this event began on day one. Several hundred bags of groceries were left over after all of the guests of honor had been served. So, local volunteers in coordination with our staff began making immediate connections with local food banks in Sioux City who will continue to spread hope.

“And that was the whole plan,” says Jean Logan, director of the community action agency that received some of the extra groceries. “It all stayed here in Siouxland and went back into the community.”
