LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week's Pay It Forward segment started out along 82nd Street west of the Tahoka Highway. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking this week's playmaker.
Yvonne Rodriguez and her daughter Audrey spotted our sign first. They pulled into the parking lot eager to be a part of Pay It Forward.
We asked Yvonne who she wanted to help out.
Yvonne chose her church. She chose Ministerios Nueva Vida as her choice to receive $300.
Yvonne told us, "They are trying to raise money to repair their kitchen."
We made the journey across Lubbock to Ministerios Nueva Vida.
We knocked on the door and Kerry Lira answered. He works with the youth program. He was very surprised to see us waiting outside.
Yvonne counted out $300 to Kerry and told him that she wanted it to go towards the kitchen repairs that the church needed.
Kerry was very excited.
Kerry said, "Thank you. We really, really appreciate it."
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon. You may become our next playmaker.
