LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Our Pay It Forward segment this week revolves around a woman who wants to help her best friend out. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign along Frankford Avenue just south of 50th Street.
It didn't take long for Ireshay Luna to show up. Ireshay has seen Pay It Forward before and immediately knew who she wanted to help out. Ireshay has chosen Krista Ortiz as this week's recipient of $300.
Ireshay and Krista have been best friends for over 10 years. Ireshay told us that Krista was the only friend she truly had when she was going through a rough time in recent years. Ireshay added that Krista could use the help to pay off bills since times have been a little tough recently.
After learning more about Krista, we hit the road for a short road trip to Shallowater. We surprise Krista at the door where Ireshay counts out $300 to help her out.
Ireshay is a little emotional since she knows how much Krista has done for her in the past. Krista says she will use the money to pay bills that need to be taken care of.
