The Convoy of Hope Rolls into Memphis Providing Some $1 Million in Goods and Services in a Single Day
Date:6/18/2012

Springfield, MO (PRWEB) June 18, 2012

Memphis is considered the poorest, large metro area in the nation (The Commercial Appeal). There are 25.4% of Memphis residents living under the poverty level, which could fill the FedEx Forum nine times. The Urban Child Institute indicates that 36% of children living in Memphis are below the poverty line.

In response to the alarming statistics, hundreds of Memphis-area residents are preparing to welcome hurting neighbors at what they hope will become a community movement. Local businesses, churches, government agencies and nonprofits will partner with The Convoy of Hope, a community outreach event Saturday, June 30, 2012 at the Mid-South Fairgrounds. 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.*

WHAT:

The Memphis community will provide some $1 million in goods and services in a
single day through lasting solutions to real needs such as 40,000 pounds of groceries, dental
and medical screenings, kids zone activities, haircuts, portraits, clothing, job fair, prayer time
and connection with local churches, family portraits, live entertainment with free lunch.

WHEN:    

Saturday, June 30, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

WHERE:    

Mid-South Fairgrounds

MEDIA OPPORTUNITIES:

  •     Interview local families benefitting from poverty-free day
  •     Interview national leaders from The Convoy of Hope
  •     Press kit materials and high-res photos of the national tour available at DeMossNews.com/ConvoyofHope
