HOQUIAM, WA — Grays Harbor County businesses, churches, and community organizations are partnering together to help the less fortunate during Grays Harbor’s first ever Convoy of Hope outreach to be held Saturday, Sept. 18 beginning at 10a.m. The outreach will be held, rain or shine, at Olympic Stadium in Hoquiam. No identification is required. Groceries will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.
The goal of the Sept. 18 Convoy of Hope outreach is to reach out to Grays Harbor children and families by meeting some of their most basic needs. Thousands of pounds of free groceries will be distributed along with free health services, family portraits, job fair, haircuts, games and activities for children, live entertainment — and it’s all FREE.
Hundreds of volunteers from numerous local churches, businesses, and community organizations will come together for this united act of compassion to make a difference in their community.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Grays Harbor County residents to unite and do something positive to combat the growing problems plaguing our community,” said local Convoy Coordinator Doug Marks. “All guests at the outreach will be greeted with open arms and will be given nourishment for both their body and soul. These people are our ‘honored guests’ and we will do everything we can to make a difference in their lives.”
Convoy of Hope is a nonprofit organization that provides resources to organizations and churches to meet physical and spiritual needs for the purpose of making the community a better place. This is accomplished through outreaches, supply lines, and disaster response domestically and internationally.
