Lucy Pinales Pays It Forward: 02/05/13


Our Pay It Forward segment this week starts out along North Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd just south of Lubbock Estacado High School.

We set up with our Pay It Forward sign searching for our next playmaker. It only took a short time for our playmaker to arrive. 

Lucy Pinales, Isaac Rosales and members of her church group were driving down the street when she spotted our sign. Isaac Rosales was driving the vehicle and turned into the parking lot right away.

Lucy knew exactly who she wanted to help out. Lucy has chosen Socorro Heartnet as this week's recipient of Pay It Forward.

Lucy explains that Socorro is an elderly woman living on a fixed income. Her daughter is ill and on dialysis. Her family has many expenses. Everyone in the vehicle agrees that Socorro is a sweet woman who could use a helping hand.

We head down the road where we find Socorro in her yard. We quickly head over to explain what is going on.

Lucy explains what is going on and tells Socorro that she is this week's recipient of $300.  Socorro is touched and thanks everyone. She gives everyone a hug and says she will spend the money on bills and a trip to El Paso where she has been wondering how she could afford to travel.

Socorro was a very sweet woman who wanted everyone to know that she appreciated the help. 

Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon! You may become our next playmaker!
