Pay It Forward starts out in North Lubbock this week. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign along North Ash Avenue north of Loop 289.
It only took a few minutes, but it wasn't long before we notice Luis Cuevas running towards us from across the street. Luis is the owner of the Cuevas Drive In. When he approaches us, he knows of a family that could use some help.
Luis explained that there is a family who lives near his drive in. They have had a hard time paying their bills and have gone through some hard times recently. Luis has decided to help out Gilbert Delafuente.
After learning that this family has been without gas or electricity at times, we follow Luis to the nearby home of Gilbert Delafuente. When we arrive, Gilbert is taking out the trash and we totally catch him off guard.
Gilbert is in shock and doesn't know what to say. He doesn't believe it's real at first, but we explain that Luis has chosen him and his family. Luis counts out $300 and tells us that it felt good to help this family out.
Be looking for our Pay it Forward sign soon. You could become our next playmaker!
