LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - This week's Pay It Forward segment begins on Slide Road between 50th Street and South Loop 289.
We set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking our weekly playmaker.
This week's playmaker was very excited about seeing us. Denise Colley was driving down Slide Road when she spotted our Pay It Forward sign.
She pulled into the parking lot right away.
We asked Denise what she would do if she had $300 to give?
Denise replied, "I would pick Juanita Bailey. She's a young mother with a small son and her other son works at Sonic and they are struggling to make ends meet."
Denise added, "I just know that it would be a really big blessing for her."
With that, Denise was super excited and ready to Pay It Forward.
"Let's do it!" Denise exclaimed.
We drove to Juanita's apartment where we met Juanita at the door. She had no idea what was going on.
Denise told her, "We are paying it forward. We wanted to bless you Miss Juanita. Here's three! Woo-hoo!!"
Denise gave Juanita $300 with her young son in her arms.
Juanita accepted the money and said, "I love you."
We asked her son how it would feel to have $300. He wasn't so sure, but Juanita was happy and gladly accepted the extra help.
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon. You may become our next playmaker.
