SourcePoint Launches “On the Go” Van Thanks to Private Donor
PRESS RELEASE—SourcePoint received a gift from a private donor in 2019 for the purchase and branding of a new van. The van is part of an ongoing initiative to increase access to SourcePoint’s professional expertise, resources, and programs. Nicknamed “SourcePoint On the Go,” the van will be utilized year-round to bring resources to older adults and family caregivers across Delaware County.
The donor, Noreen Slusser Weisberg, is a longtime Delaware resident. She joined SourcePoint in 2009 based on a recommendation from a neighbor. Weisberg volunteers for the organization, as well, assisting with insurance education. This is her first major gift to the nonprofit.
“SourcePoint appreciates this generous support for our mission,” said Amy Schossler, director of community programs at SourcePoint. “The growth of the older population in Delaware County is booming and this van will help expand our reach, especially in more rural areas.”
The van’s back panel is inscribed with, “Supported by the Slusser-Weisberg Family,” in recognition and honor of Weisberg’s gift.
“I wanted to do something to honor and remember both my husband, Joe H. Weisberg, and my parents, Albert and Lorena Campbell Slusser, who are no longer with me,” said Weisberg. “The SourcePoint On the Go van is a good way for me to support SourcePoint and its mission.”
SourcePoint is a private 501(c)(3) organization serving all of Delaware County. Funding for community programs comes from a variety of sources, including the local property tax levy, corporate and private donations, and grants. To learn more, go to MySourcePoint.org/give.
