Pay It Forward starts out this week along Quaker Avenue between 34th and 50th Street. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign searching for this week's playmaker.
It only took moments for a vehicle to show up. Angelica Guzman spotted our sign and pulled into the parking lot. Angelica has seen Pay It Forward over the past year and she knew exactly who she wanted to assist. Angelica has chosen Paula Cabrera as this week's recipient of $300.
Paula is Angelica's grandmother's best friend. She explains that Paula is lovable and a very happy person to be around. She adds that Paula is always doing her best to help others in need. Angelica believes that the money would come in handy for Paula. She is without insurance for her vehicle.
We drive to North Central Lubbock to surprise Paula. When we arrive, Paula is shocked. She didn't know what was going on. Angelica explains what happened and that they want to give her $300 to help her out this spring.
Paula accepts the money and explains that she is "very happy!"
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon! You may become our next playmaker!
