Monday, May 6, 2019 For Immediate Release Springfield, MO – On April 27, The Warrior’s Journey joined forces with Convoy of Hope in Philadelphia as part of the Veteran’s Services Connections portion of their Community Events.
The spring event in Philadelphia was the first of 18 events scheduled for 2019, at which The Warrior’s Journey, along with 700 volunteers, served 3,750 people and 170 veterans.
