LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week's Pay It Forward started out along 50th Street, east of University Avenue.
We set up Wednesday afternoon seeking this week's playmaker.
Nina Green spotted our sign first and was excited to see us.
We asked Nina who she wanted to help.
She chose a friend simply known as "auntie" Tori who was helping a niece named Julie Upton.
She felt like this family could use $300.
We made the drive to Tori's house, knocked on the door and Tori answered right away.
She was completely surprised. When Nina counted out $300, Tori told us she felt like she should pay it forward to Julie.
Julie is a single mother and she was resting while the kids were asleep.
Julie was completely caught off guard.
Nina explained what was going on and counted out $300 to Julie.
Julie was excited and told us she was down to her last dollar almost. She gratefully accepted $300 and hugged Nina.
Be looking for our pay it forward sign soon. You may become our next playmaker.
