Officials at Momentum (Brethren National Youth Conference) and CE National have announced a partnership with Convoy of Hope, a transdenominational organization that provides disaster relief, builds supply lines, and sponsors outreaches to the poor and hurting in communities.
Convoy of Hope will join with the participants of Momentum to provide a truckload of food that will be distributed to residents of Gulfport, Miss. The truck will hold an estimated 5,000 bags of food.
Momentum will be held July 21-27 at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg.
In addition, the organization is providing a grant to help defray the expense of transporting volunteers from the conference to work sites in Gulfport and Pearlington. (See related story)
