The U.S. poverty rate is expected to rise to its highest level in 50 years from 15.1 percent in 2010 to as high as 15.7 percent, according to a recent Associated Press report based on economic predictions.
“This is alarming news and motivates us even more to try and help as many Americans as possible who are going through rough times,” says Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope. “Our 50-state community outreach tour is well underway and we’ve already served more than 45,000 guests of honor this year.”
‘The Convoy of Hope’ tour will make stops this weekend in St. Louis, Mo., Dayton, Ohio, and Honolulu, Hawaii.
