The fourth annual Convoy of Hope is coming to Swope Park on June 8 and volunteers are needed to help put on another successful event.  Last year, Convoy of Hope attracted 8,000 area residents who received all kinds of free services, including new shoes, haircuts, massages, manicures, business clothes and family portraits.  A highlight of the event is that all guests receive a free bag of groceries when they leave. Last year volunteers handed out 50,000 pounds of groceries.

Another important function of Convoy of Hope is to provide job services. At least 50 volunteers are needed to help write resumes, provide job search tips, connect people to employers and provide online application instructions. Groups or individuals interested in signing up should do so no later than Monday, June 3.  Click on this link to register  to get available time slots and volunteer descriptions.
