Carolina Strong: Kings Mountain woman spends every day helping those in need

Kings Mountain resident Teresa Wingo spends seven days a week helping those in need.

“Every day of my life, I come out, and I load up my vehicle every evening just to come out and look for people that might need assistance for the day just for the moment, whatever they need, right, then it’s very basic things,” Wingo explained.

Wingo told Channel 9 that she receives donations from individuals, churches, and various sports around town.

She said it’s something her parents did, and she feels called to continue.

“Sometimes it’s heavy for people. But I thank God it’s not, that’s not heavy for me,” Wingo expressed.
