Convoy of Hope was founded in 1994 by the Donaldson family. Their inspiration for starting the organization can be traced back to the many people who helped their family after their father, Harold, was killed by a drunk driver in 1969. Today, more than 115 million people have been served throughout the world by Convoy of Hope.

Hundreds of children in Gaston County go home to little or no food on the weekends. The Backpack Ministry fills backpacks full of food for these children. Often times this is the only food they may have. The backpacks are then delivered to schools where students are in need. Your donation would help buy food to go in these backpacks.
