Convoy Of Hope Working to Help Local Tornado Victims

Convoy of Hope, the Springfield-based charity organization known for sending teams around the world to help in time of crisis, is helping around the Ozarks after Tuesday night’s wave of storms.

Volunteers from Convoy were in the Waterford neighborhood in Ozark and other areas in Greene and Christian counties to help landowners with securing their properties and light tree removal.

“In addition to the work we are doing in Ozark, we are also working with Greene County Emergency Management to assess potential needs in the rest of the affected area,” Stacy Lamb, Convoy of Hope’s senior director of U.S. disaster services, said in a statement. “We have also communicated with Emergency Management in several other counties to assess potential needs after the outbreak of tornadoes last night.”

Since its founding in 1994, Convoy of Hope has served over 115 million people around the world in times of need.
