SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Global disaster relief agency Convoy of Hope still has crews in Florida, working to help people impacted by Hurricane Ian, which made landfall Sept. 28 as a Category 4 storm.
Convoy of Hope, which is based out of Springfield, is holding regular drive-through distribution events in Fort Myers. Convoy has served as many as 10,000 people, according to the agency.
Convoy of Hope faced a unique challenge getting supplies to Pine Island, which was also hit by Ian, since those who stayed there were cut off from resources. Convoy crews loaded up a boat with food, gasoline and other supplies to get those much-needed resources to the island. You can see a video of that effort from Convoy of Hope in the player above.
