LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

This week's Pay it Forward segment started out along Boston Avenue between 34th and 50th Street.  

Enedina McGraw spotted our Pay It Forward sign within minutes. She nearly passed us by before turning around and deciding that she felt led to help out a local church.

We asked Enedina who she wanted to help out.  

Enedina replied, "It would be St. Patrick's Catholic Church. My mom, my aunt and all of my family have always gone there."  

Enedina added, "The church has always been there for me.  At my lowest times when my mom died, they were always there for me. They've always gone out of their way to help if they can."

We drove across Lubbock to St. Patrick's Catholic Church.  

Enedina spotted Sister Patricia outside preparing for registration for children at the church.

We walked up to her where Enedina completely surprised Sister Patricia.

Sister Patricia accepted the money and said, "Thank you so much."

Sister Patricia added, "We are going to buy books with this.  It will help us buy supplies for our children and our youth and things.  We also have parent retreats and youth retreats so it's plenty to help us.  Thank you so much."

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