L.R. Rivera Pays It Forward: 11/18 – Sponsored By WesTex FCU

WesTex Federal Credit Union is proud to sponsor KCBD’s Pay It Forward segment.

This week’s Pay It Forward segment began near the intersection of 82nd Street and the Tahoka Highway. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign searching for this week’s playmaker.

Within a couple of minutes, L.R. Rivera spotted our sign and pulled into the parking lot. L.R. has watched Pay It Forward in the past and knew who he wanted to help out. L.R. picked Gary Anderson as this week’s recipient of $300.

L.R. told us that Gary works at Manual’s Appliances near 82nd and the Tahoka Highway. L.R. told us that Gary does not have a vehicle right now. His vehicle broke down and he fell on hard times with bills as the holidays are approaching.

We took a short drive to Manual’s Appliances where we found Gary hard at LR Rivera 11-18-13work lifting appliances. L.R. counted out $300 to Gary. Gary was speechless and extremely grateful for the extra help.

Gary was emotional, but very happy that L.R. chose him. Gary said the money would come in handy with Christmas just around the corner.

Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon. You may become our next playmaker who makes a difference across the South Plains…

Loop 289. Matt told us that Sid’s work is seasonal and dependent on the cotton industry, which has been sluggish the past few years. With Christmas around the corner, Matt told us that Sid could probably use the money to help out during the holidays.

Sid has four children and Matt explained that Sid is hard working and has the “best attitude you can find in a person.”

We drove to Lov-Cot Warehouse where we found Sid at the front desk. We caught Sid completely off-guard. He was speechless.

“I don’t know what to say!” Sid explained. “I’m just….happy!”

Angelica Rosales Pays It Forward 11/4 – Sponsored By WesTex FCU

KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

Our Pay It Forward started out along North University just north of the Marsha Sharp Freeway this week. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking this week’s playmaker.

A minute or two passed by before our playmaker arrived.

Angelica knew who she wanted to help out right away. She chose Leslie Reyna as this week’s Pay It Forward recipient. Angelica explained that Leslie has diabetes and is a single mother of two. Her son was recently born premature. Leslie mounted significant medical bills and with the tough economy, Angelica felt that Leslie could use the extra help.

So we drove down the road a bit. When we arrived, Angelica told us Leslie was not one to ask for help, but it felt good to help her out. Angelica knew that Leslie would be surprised…

When we arrived at Leslie’s house, she opened the door with her baby in tow. She was giving her baby a bath. She was completely shocked and said,Pay-It-Forward-11_14_13 “It’s a blessing!”

Leslie explained that she has diabetes, has no insurance and is missing work because she is caring for herself and her children. Angelica and Leslie were both emotional, but thankful that they were in the right place at the right time.

Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon. You may become the next playmaker who makes a difference to someone on the South Plains.

Boone Tyson, T.J. Worley and Chase Reiners Pay It Forward: 10/28

KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – This week’s Pay It Forward segment starts out on South Indiana Avenue near 98th Street. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign searching for this week’s playmaker.

Within minutes, Boone Tyson, T.J. Worley and Chase Reiners showed up, heading through town on their lunch break. Boone, T.J. and Chase had not seen Pay It Forward before. We explained how it works and they immediately had someone in mind.

All three playmakers unanimously selected Dana Brewer as this week’s recipient of $300. Dana and her husband have gone through struggles with medical bills this year. Dana has recently been to the doctor suffering from an unexpected seizure. They found a spot on her brain and medical bills piled up in a hurry.

Boone, T.J. and Chris told us we could find Dana at Church on the Rock, watching over kids in the nursery area. So we headed across town to Church on the Rock.

When we arrived, Boone, T.J. and Chris discussed the option of adding everything they had in their pockets to the task at hand. They put together $50Pay-It-Forward-10-28-13 in addition to the normal amount of $300. With their donation, we had our first segment where a playmaker added more money to the pot. We headed into the church to find Dana.

When we entered the building, we found Dana in a classroom full of kids. Boone distributed $350 in cash to help Dana and her family out. Many tears were shed. Dana was completely surprised and full of emotion. Dana thanked God for the many blessings that He has given to her and her family and thanked everyone present for helping her out.

So keep looking for our Pay It Forward sign. You may become our next playmaker who makes a difference to someone on the South Plains.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

 

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -Pay It Forward is back! We kicked off this week’s segment in central Lubbock along Avenue Q between 34th and 50th Street.

We set up with our Pay It Forward sign seeking a playmaker who might be able to answer the question, “If you had $300 to give, who would you help out?”

It took less than a minute for our recipient to show up. She spotted us with our sign right away. LaToya Hopson saw our sign and immediately pulled into the parking lot.

LaToya wanted to help out Paul Richardson of Lubbock. Paul is someone she has seen at her church a time or two. LaToya explains that Paul is trying to get back on his feet, and she feels he could really use some extra help.

We took a short trip to Paul’s house, and when we arrive, he is completely surprised.

LaToya counts out $300. Paul said, “Thank You!” and tells us he will use the money to pay bills. He says he has several that need to be paid that day.

Paul gave LaToya a hug and tells everyone “God Bless” for helping him out in a time of need.
