Charity Spotlight: Convoy of Hope

The iconic symbol of Convoy of Hope.

When it comes to helping others, one of “the best in the business” is Convoy of Hope.

It’s been a longtime Ozarks children’s charity of the PGA Korn Ferry Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper, and look at the work they’ve done over the years – or even now.

Its mission is to feed 10 million Americans during the COVD-19 pandemic.

Convoy of Hope is a faith-based, international humanitarian-relief organization strategically located in Springfield — the crossroads of America. Its goal is to bring hope to people who need it most in the United States and developing countries around the world.
