Convoy of Hope set for its second year

June 4, 2013 by  

This weekend, Long Island’s second annual Convoy of Hope will be taking place in Uniondale, New York. The event is set up to supply local residents who are in need with food and other amenities.

There will be over 75,000 pounds of donated groceries available for distribution among those who attend, and they will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. There will also be free haircuts, resume assistance, health screenings, and even live entertainment at the event.

Convoy of Hope is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1994. It helps to feed those who are in need as well as to provide disaster relief to hard hit regions. It also strives to create healthy living environments that include providing safe drinking water, teaching agricultural techniques, and creating educational opportunities.

The organization operates all over the world, especially in third world nations in South America, Africa, and Southeast Asia. However, in the United States, there are still many who are in need every day and require aid, which Convoy of Hope seeks to provide through these kinds of celebrations.

Events like this one usually require a lot of printed materials. Flyer printing companies could help to supply advertising and promotional materials to alert people who could benefit from this event in Uniondale and other nearby areas like Garden City or Hicksville.

The Convoy of Hope will take place this Saturday, June 8. It begins at 10:00 am and will be open until supplies run out.
