— Hundreds of volunteers arrived early at Cora Kelly Recreation Center to set up for a day free of poverty for many area residents. Families were offered free medical, dental and eye screenings, free books for the children, activities for the children, family portraits, live entertainment, spiritual guidance and prayer time, free lunch and groceries. The Convoy of Hope partnered with local businesses, churches, government agencies and non-profits to deliver over $1 million in goods and services to area residents on Sept. 22.
