A Southwest Missouri nonprofit sends crews with truck-loads of supplies to the Carolinas to begin hurricane relief efforts.
Convoy of Hope, a Springfield organization that was a large part of tornado recovery after Joplin’s May 2011 tornado, have 15 truck loads of supplies heading to the Carolinas in the wake of Hurricane Florence.
A crew just arrived in Wilmington, South Carolina early this morning and have already started distributing supplies.
All of their volunteers give out donated supplies to shelters, like food, clothing, water, infant supplies, bedding and more.
“One of the things that we really strive to do is not just provide food, water and supplies, but to bring hope. And just to be an encouragement to people, and we see that reflected back to us,” says Convoy of Hope’s Spokesperson, Jeff Nene.
They plan to expand their reach into other impacted areas in South Carolina and North Carolina.
Crews will remain in the disaster area until the recovery is finished–right now, there is no timeline.
