Springfield, Missouri (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
Memphis community volunteers from local nonprofits and for-profits will host hurting neighbors as honored guests for a “poverty-free day” with The Convoy of Hope.
Thousands of Memphis residents—many America’s “working poor”—receive some $1 million in goods and services in a single day through lasting solutions to real need such as 40,000 pounds of groceries, dental and medial screenings, kids zone activities, haircuts, portraits, clothing, job fair, prayer time and connection with local churches, with free lunch and more.
This community event is one of dozens of stops along a 50-state, $50 million tour of hope and help for the 46 million Americans currently living in poverty—the largest number on record.*
Saturday, June 30, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Congressman Steve Cohen will make a brief stop at the event at approximately 10:30 a.m.
