Community Partnership Creates Hope During the Holidays

Reported by

Through the generosity of many, families are finding hope in a Christmas season that has been unusually and unexpectedly challenging. Hundreds of people received bags of groceries, Bombas Socks, and Gardens in a Bag from Convoy of Hope and its partners at a recent Community Event hosted by North Point Church.

“I know of a family whose pipes burst in their home,” said Jonathan Martz, Republic Campus Pastor at North Point Church. “While they would normally be okay for Christmas, their money this year went all toward repairs. This event allows the community to come alongside to help serve one another. We are looking to unify businesses, people, and partners together to serve a need in our community.”

Because of generous donors, Convoy of Hope is able to equip churches to meet the needs of those in their communities.

“What we want to do is come alongside families who may have had extra struggles during this last year and remind them that hope is close,” said Jeremy Johnson, Lead Pastor of North Point Church. “Whether it’s through a bag of groceries, toys, an interaction, or a smile. We want to show people that there is hope and love.”

Convoy of Hope is thankful for partners like North Point Church. If your church, business, or organization is interested in teaming up with Convoy, you can learn how to get involved here.

Convoy of Hope was invited to take part in an outreach Friday in Uvalde, TX, the site of an unthinkable shooting in May. With volunteers from Tree City Church, a tractor-trailer of goods was distributed to the community, bringing hope for this school year. http://h.ope.is/3PjQWmg
