Convoy of Hope Serves Thousands of Hurricane Survivors
SPRINGFIELD, MO.— Convoy of Hope is responding in full force to the communities affected by Hurricane Michael. Convoy has already helped thousands of hurricane survivors through a distribution site in Marianna, Florida. In the drive-thru distribution, they are serving families and individuals with water, food, ice, hygiene kits and other disaster relief supplies. They have also begun mobile distribution, delivering supplies in 18 surrounding communities.

“It’s hard to imagine the destruction of a Category 4 Hurricane,” says Convoy of Hope’s National Spokesperson Jeff Nene. “As we have driven through the neighborhoods of the Panhandle of Florida, the destruction we have seen is mind-boggling. We have seen buildings flattened, homes destroyed, even railroad trains flipped on their sides. One thing Convoy of Hope does best is the distribution of food, water and emergency supplies after a disaster hits. We will continue to work with volunteers in this community to provide hope and help to those in need.”

Convoy of Hope has distributed more than 289,000 pounds of product and has served more than 15,000 individuals since Michael made landfall. Convoy of Hope partners with local churches and organizations to help distribute supplies in communities affected by the disaster.
