Car donation offers hope

Published 3:22 pm Wednesday, May 18, 2011

When Nancy Worsnop (right, pictured with Rachel Ramsey, Steps to HOPE executive director) read that Steps to HOPE was looking for a donated car, she responded immediately, never pausing to ask “why.” Within a matter of days a beautiful, low mileage, late model Honda Accord was being driven away by an extremely grateful, tearful client, anxious to shine up the car before surprising her children by picking them up from school. This donation will enable Steps to HOPE’s client to find employment and support her family; until now, she depended on others for any and all transportation needs. Worsnop was a Steps to HOPE board of directors treasurer before becoming its president in 1993. An active volunteer for the agency for years, she formed the first Women’s Support Group, with which she continued to be involved for more than five years. Worsnop currently resides at Tryon Estates.
