  • Good Samaritan buys lunch for everyone at Hope Workshop

    Editor:

    My name is Ricky Wainscott. I volunteer at the NorthKey ADT (Hope Workshop).

    On Friday, Oct. 18, I was outside taking a break. As a truck went by, I waved at the driver. He turned around and came back. He pulled over and got out of his truck, walked up to me and handed me a $100 bill. He stated it was a beautiful day and to have a cook-out for everyone there and enjoy the day. Before I had a chance to ask him his name, he had already left.
