Care Convoy Looking To Expand

Tools

By Brittany Cooper

Jerome, Idaho (KMVT-TV) In its first two years, the care convoy has collected more than five million dollars worth of medical supplies and equipment. The gear goes to help communities in northern Mexico.

On Saturday they held a meeting at the Jerome Rural Fire Station 2, looking for volunteers, donors and anyone who wants to help.

The group is getting so large, they're actually thinking of expanding past Mexico.

Todd Jaynes, the organizer of the Care Convoy says, "we're looking at going national with it. And we're expanding, instead of just taking things to Mexico, we're actually looking or sending to places like Pakistan, Uganda, Sierra Leone. We're looking to make this thing big."

Jaynes adds they're leaving a week from Monday to head down to Mexico for the Baja 1000. They usually average to trips to that country each month.

If you would like to get involved with the organization, please call todd at 490–0011.
