LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week's Pay It Forward started out near 45th and Memphis where we set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking this week's playmaker.
It didn't take long for our playmaker to show up. Maggie Montelongo works at Maedgen Elementary School. She spotted our sign first and immediately knew who she wanted to assist.
We asked Maggie if she had $300, who would she pick?
Maggie told us, "St. Luke's Church."
We asked her why she wanted to help this church out.
Maggie said, "They do a lot for our school. They give us school supplies. They give us clothes for the kids. I think they deserve it."
We went to the main office at St. Luke's Church to Pay It Forward.
Shalan Inmon is the Central Office Assistant at St. Luke's Church.
When we walked in, she was totally surprised.
Maggie told her that she wanted to give back to the church. She told Shalan that the church had done so much for the kids, that she wanted to give back to the church for being so kind.
Maggie counted out $300 to Shalan to go towards anything that the church may need.
Shalan was grateful and accepted on behalf of St. Luke's Church.
Shalan said, "Thank you so very much. We'll put this to good use."
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon. You may become our next playmaker.
