LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week's Pay It Forward segment started out along 34th Street in Central Lubbock. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking this week's playmaker.
Within seconds, Betty Vasquez spotted our sign. She was very excited to find us.
We asked her if she had $300 to give, who would she choose?
Betty chose David and San Juana Alaniz as this week's recipient of Pay It Forward.
Betty explained, "He broke his ribs and everything. He's been having to work like that. His wife just got out of the hospital, so they are having a really hard time."
Betty added, "I hope I find them at home, his wife or either one."
We drove to David and San Juana's apartment. When we arrived, San Juana opened the door.
Betty counted out $300 to San Juana who was completely surprised.
When she asked if they could use the money, San Juana replied, "Yes. Yes. Thank you very much."
Betty translated for San Juana and told us that she had just come home from the doctor's office where they still owe over $500 with another expensive appointment on the way.
San Juana said, "Thank you very much!"
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon. You may become our next playmaker.
