Convoy Surpasses 5 Million Meals Mark

SPRINGFIELD, MO. — April 9, 2020 — ?In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Convoy of Hope? announced an initiative in March to serve “10 Million Meals.” Since then, the nonprofit organization has delivered more than 5 million meals to partners, churches, and community organizations across the United States. Convoy of Hope has received hundreds of requests for assistance from more than 40 states.

“We are grateful to hit the 5 million meal mark,” said Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope. “But the need is still so great. We’re going to do everything possible to keep our fleet of semi-trucks rolling. Once we reach 10 million meals, we plan to set an even higher goal.”

Lines of cars are longer than expected at distribution sites, said Donaldson. “Lots of people have lost their jobs, children don’t have access to school lunch programs, and some stores are struggling to keep their shelves full.”

“Thanks to the generosity of corporations, individuals and churches, many families are receiving much needed help,” Donaldson said. “This is a united act of compassion. We’re seeing so many groups link arms to help people get through this crisis. In some respects, kindness is a medicine that many Americans need right now, and we’re seeing it being given out across the nation.”

Convoy of Hope is a faith-based, nonprofit organization with a driving passion to feed the world through children’s feeding initiatives, community outreaches, and disaster response. Visit ? to donate to their response.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
