Today at Life Church in Fort Smith, and continuing until 6pm today, Convoy of Hope has arrived this morning with a semi-truck loaded with food, supplies, cleaning items, buckets, large totes and groceries for the sole purpose of helping those whose homes have been recently affected by the floods in the Fort Smith/River Valley area.
With over 300 volunteers, there was a massive effort to bag groceries this morning to get ready to distribute the much needed items.
According to Life Church campus Pastor, Steven Reed, “We are the church with a capital “C” and we can do something to help.”
Life Church, located right off the interstate of Kelley Highway, is a multi-site church and relocated to their new building in September 2018.
Many people have already come for the supplies with more coming into the parking lots. In looking out over the area, there is still a lot of flooding, but according to weather reports, it is receding.
Volunteers have responded by being available for this and many other relief efforts all over this area.
