Sue Hollingsworth, a Greer Community Ministries client, received a reconditioned 2012 Kia Forte on Thursday as part of the Recycled Ride program.

Hollingsworth, from Taylors, was in need of a car for errands, transportation to church and visiting her friends at GCM.

D & D Motors President/General Manager Skip Davenport initiated a conversation with GCM Executive Director Cindy Simpler asking for a client in need of transportation. Davenport's service department reconditioned the vehicle.

Hollingsworth said her vehicle has been undergoing a myriad of repairs for five years and had been towed three times. “The starter would fail without warning. Having a reliable vehicle will help me with transportation to church, to the store, to appointments and to Greer Community Ministries where I see my friends,” she said.

Money that Hollingsworth saves from repairs will go toward buying groceries and paying bills.

“Sue is the type of person that will help everyone around her, “Simpler said. “She is currently keeping a neighbor’s son while she works. Her life has been tough, but she graciously gives back wherever she is able. We are so happy that she will now have a car that will be safe and reliable.”

Hollingsworth reared five children who all married. “As the kids got older, they married and they helped me as they were able,” she said. A daughter-in-law was killed in an auto accident and Hollingsworth lived with her son to help raise his daughter until she was 16.

“I can look back and see that God (has) pulled me out of so much. God is good to me. He deserves all the glory, “Hollingsworth said. “I am so grateful to D & D Motors, Charity Cars and Esurance for helping me by giving me this great car.”
