LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

This week's Pay It Forward segment began along Detroit Avenue between 4th Street and Clovis Highway.

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

In a matter of seconds, Eric Casarez and his mother spotted our Pay It Forward sign.  

We asked Eric who he wanted to help out.

Eric told us that he wanted to donate the money to Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in North Lubbock.

Eric told us he has been going to Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church since he was young.  

Eric added that he just became the father of a newborn son and the church has been helping him out a lot in recent weeks.

We made the short trip to Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church. 

I counted out $300 to Eric and we went inside to locate the church office.

When we arrived, we found Sylvia and Mary inside the break room taking their lunch break during the lunch hour.

Sylvia accepted the money and told Eric thank you.

Mary had seen Pay It Forward before and was excited to see us.

Sylvia mentioned that the money could be used for the building fund as they are expanding their church right now.

Sylvia said, "Thank you very much.  We appreciate it."

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