On September 7, Convoy of Hope took over the parking lot outside of RFK Stadium in Washington DC to provide food and services to the local families in need. The event included a kids play area, live entertainment, lunch, haircuts, manicures, portraits, medical screenings, a job fair, prayer, groceries and more.
I had the privilege of being a volunteer at the event. It was fun work. I enjoyed the enthusiasm of the volunteers and even made some new friends.
Donating a few hours of my time was all it took to be a part of helping 10,000 people! It was well worth it.

that’s a pretty amazing event. Anyone know of similar programs going on in their communities? Also, I’m curious what proportion of the volunteers were afiliated with the churches and participated as part of their community and who many came on their own. Thanks for sharing!
Sounds like a neat event.
