This week's Pay It Forward segment started out along North Erskine Street just west of Avenue Q in North Lubbock.

We set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking this week's playmaker. 

Johnny Lovato spotted our sign almost immediately.  Johnny had seen Pay It Forward before.

We asked Johnny who he wanted to help out.

Johnny told us, "I know a person who could use it.  She's been having some difficulties."  

Johnny decided to help Zora Flores and give her $300 to assist with some of the difficult challenges she has been facing.

Johnny added that Zora had just started a new job and was having a hard time keeping up with her bills.

He felt that she was well deserving and could really use the extra money right now.

Zora works at a local call center and we had to track her down on the job.

We gave $300 to Johnny and went inside searching for Zora.

The managers called Zora to the front of the building and she was completely surprised. 

Zora was shy when she spotted our cameras.

Johnny counted out $300 to Zora.

Zora accepted the money saying, "Thank you so much."

Since Zora works at a call center, she had to go back to work immediately.

Johnny was glad he spotted us.

Johnny told us, "It made my day too.  I'm kind of glad I ran into you all."

Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon.  You may become our next playmaker.
