Earlier today, Convoy of Hope leaders thanked Peter F. Herschend, president of the Missouri Board of Education, for his role in making last year’s statewide Kits 4 Kids campaign a success.
“Peter Herschend was instrumental in connecting Convoy of Hope with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education,” says Ron Showers, global initiatives director for Convoy of Hope. “He helped to lay the foundation for the campaign that generated more than 40,000 hygiene kits for the children of Haiti.”
Students across Missouri donated more than 200,000 dollars’ worth of basic toiletry items for Convoy of Hope to distribute to victims of the earthquake.
