And the winner is.....

Earlier this year a gentleman walked into the Northwest Community Action Partnership office with the keys to a 2003 Suburban in mint condition. He began to explain to us that our Agency had assisted him through some difficult times in the past. He told of how our help got him on his feet and put him on a whole new trajectory in life. Now that he was in a better position, he had been thinking of ways to pay it forward and decided to donate one of his vehicles to our agency with only two requests - first, that he remain anonymous, he was not at all interested in receiving public praise or fame out of this kind gesture. Second, that we find a person in great need to gift the vehicle to. He also graciously provided a financial donation to cover the cost of insurance for one year as well as the vehicle registration.

So, we set about building a plan for how we would find the right person to receive the vehicle and opened up nominations to the five counties that we serve: Dawes, Sioux, Sheridan, Cherry and Box Butte. Each nomination that was received had all personal and identifiable information redacted before going to a review committee to ensure that there would be no bias when selecting a winner. After weeks of deliberation the committee (which was comprised of representatives from all five counties) made their selection - Reva Bassler of Cody, was nominated by her daughter, Danielle.
