A Convoy of Hope semi filled with groceries will be in Pueblo on Saturday September 19th to help us kick off our community outreach. Groceries (one bag per household) will be distributed to families on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last.

Saturday's event will consist of free food served and cold drinks served to all of our guests. A children’s Kids Zone with bounce houses, food and carnival games will be provided. Ongoing live entertainment from local Pueblo music, talent and cheer groups, free haircuts and family portraits will also be offered during the outreach.

A Health Fair will be provided on site. Information along with health screenings and light medical exams will be provided. Phyisicians and medical personnel will be available on site. If you would like to contribute to the health fair or be involved please email our Coordinator, Julie Catalano.
