“Day two, no help was in sight…until your Convoy of Hope pulled into our city. It was literally a blessing. We have never seen such a sight. Your company of volunteers came with a smile, a warm handshake and a word of encouragement.”
– Former Deputy Police Chief Tom Milar, Picayune, Miss.
Convoy of Hope’s headquarters, warehouse and distribution center are located in Springfield, Missouri at the crossroads of America, where U.S. 65 and I-44 intersect. Springfield is an ideal location for the rapid transportation of goods. Loads of food and other relief supplies are transferred to and from the warehouse weekly.
“Tell the people who sent you, ‘Thank you, for sending help to my people.’ You have literally saved our lives.”
– Rev. Daniel Prodip Gain, Bangladesh
