WICHITA, Kansas – A day of hope, that’s what Saturday is being called.

Hundreds of volunteers, churches, and businesses are coming together for the Convoy of Hope.

Bethel Life Center is hosting the event that will provide medical and dental screenings, haircuts, clothes and shoes as well as groceries for families who attend.

Organizers hope it’s more than a place to get free stuff but will help those in need to find they services they need all year.

“This is just a beginning point, and the hope is that people will connect with services that they need and then those services will be sustainable for them as time goes on they’ll be able to continue with the relationships they made this day and they’re able to go out and get those services on a co-tinting basis,” said Gail Starnes, Wichita Convoy of Hope Chair.

If you’re interested in helping out, there is a volunteer meeting tonight at 7 p.m. at Bethel Life Center at I-235 South and Meridian.

The event will start tomorrow at 10 a.m.
