'Our one day can impact their every day'

Convoy of Hope donation

Faith Family Worship Center Pastor Buck Proffer and Pastor Aaron Proffer stand with one of the many Clorox cleaning products donated by Convoy of Hope.

Faith Family Worship Center was given a donation of 1,728 gallons of Clorox medical grade cleaning product worth over $60,000 from one of it partners, Convoy of Hope.

"The donation was pallets of medical grade chemical made by Clorox used to disinfect surfaces for bacteria and viruses," Faith Family Worship Center Pastor Aaron Proffer said. "We were able to give the school district five pallets, one to SMTS, and one to the hospital. Each pallet has roughly $5,700 worth of product."

Proffer said Convoy of Hope receives donations from all kinds of businesses and people across the world and this particular donation was an in-kind donation of cleaner from Clorox.

"Jeff (Anderson) called us and asked if we had people in our community that could use the cleaner," Proffer said. "I of course said 'yes.' They started sending it out to help and I honestly just started thinking of places that I knew were having to do cleaning protocols due to COVID-19. I hope it helps these organizations offset some of their proposed budget for cleaning supplies and allows them to use the remainder in another needed area."

Proffer said the church came across Convoy of Hope at a church leadership event when Jeff Anderson (from COH) was talking about how they impacted people.

"Convoy of Hope could be the best charitable organization that I have ever seen," Proffer said. "I say that because they are incredibly efficient and are impacting people across the world. They are and have always been 4 out of 4 stars with Charity Navigator, an organization that rates charitable organizations."

Proffer said more than 92 cents of every dollars goes to impact people and the organization has very little overhead costs.

"Yet, they are feeding almost 400,000 kids every day across the world and also respond to natural disasters all across the U.S.," Proffer said. "We know as a church that we can't do everything, so we are happy to partner with organizations like Convoy to help spread hope."

Proffer said Faith Family Worship Center has been supporting Convoy of Hope through the church for the last 5 years.

"We choose to dedicate a Sunday every year and challenge people to give one day's worth of wages to Convoy of Hope," Proffer said. "We say our one day can impact their every day."

"I would love to hank Convoy for the donation and the recipients of the donation for serving our great community," Proffer said.
