Last weekend, Convoy of Hope participated in Springfield Public Schools’ Back to School Bash. Nearly 4,500 people came to receive supplies for the new school year. 6,000 backpacks were distributed to ensure every student in need received a bag.

Two of Convoy’s partners — Bombas Socks and Plum Organics — provided students and families with socks and groceries. Students not only received backpacks, but left with them filled to the brim with supplies and food.

More than 500 people came to the event and received groceries and services to lift a burden off of their shoulders during the back-to-school season.
