LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Pay It Forward started out along MLK Boulevard in East Lubbock this week.
We set up with our Pay It Forward sign searching for someone with a giving heart and a desire to help others.
After just a few minutes, Joe Pinson spotted our sign and pulled into the parking lot. He immediately knew who he wanted to help out.
Joe said that we are all called to be public servants in this life. He chose Corinna Morris as this week's recipient of $300. Joe works with Corinna at the Federal Building. With recent furloughs in the fall, he felt that Corinna could use an extra hand.
We followed Joe to the Federal Building and had Corinna meet us outside. When she came out, Joe surprised her with $300.
Corinna was speechless. When asked how the money would be spent, she told us that recent furloughs had made it tough on her and that she had fallen behind, just like many families do over the holidays.
She thanked Joe and told us that it was a "God Thing!" that everyone was in the right place at the right time...
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon. You may become the next South Plains resident who makes a difference in another person's life.
