Dear Convoy Partner:
We are on our way to 2022’s Convoy of Hope. After nine years, Convoy of Hope-Wichita believes even more in our mission statement … to be an organization with a driving passion to provide outreach to the needy in our community.
Last year was a banner year for Convoy of Hope-Wichita because we jumped from three sites to eight sites! We were so blessed and honored to have five more partners join us in our efforts to help those in need. This year we will jump up to nine sites all over our city, as well as in Hutchinson and Goddard. These are our nine sites:
Bethel Life Center McAdams Park Evergreen Recreation Center
His Helping Hands Hope Church Wichita Hope Church Hutchinson-St Fairgrounds
LifePoint-Valley Center HS Zaik Church Goddard-Eisenhower HS (new site)
After nine years, we are still averaging around 6,000-8,500 guests each year. We have heard from many of our guests that they have come to count on our outreach to help get their children ready for school. It was such a wonderful thing to hear because we want to provide that kind of sustainable help to the families of Wichita and the surrounding areas.
Our one Day of Hope will happen on Saturday, July 23. We will continue to do a drive-thru service as this seems to be the best way to continue at this point. In a drive-thru process, we distribute welcome bags full of community resources and children’s bags with games and prizes, while families receive backpacks for their kids and several bags/boxes of groceries.
Over our nine years we have served 122,465 guests. We understand many of these are repeat families, but they were able to get the help they needed not only during the early pandemic stage but throughout the year. We learned many lessons last year, but one remained the same ... people are still in need. No matter what the circumstances are that brought them to us, we are determined to show compassion and concern for each and every one.
We are ONLY able to continue to meet these needs because of generous contributors! Would you please consider giving us your support in 2022? As the needs grow, so does our budget. You can donate through our website using the "Donate" button below, or by mailing in a check to Convoy of Hope-Wichita at 3777 S. Meridian Wichita, Kansas 67217.
