This week's Pay It Forward starts out along 82nd Street just west of the Tahoka Highway. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign searching for this week's playmaker.
We didn't wait long. Victor Azua shows up within a minute or two. Victor knew exactly who he wanted to assist.
Victor has chosen Janie Torrez as this week's recipient of $300. Victor tells us that Janie was his neighbor awhile back when he was living in government assisted housing. Janie would always encourage Victor and his wife. She offered him advice when he needed it. Victor decided that Pay It Forward was the perfect time to repay the favor.
We drive to Janie's apartment. When we arrive, we set up around the corner and count out $300 to Victor. Victor then heads to Janie's apartment where he surprises her with $300 at her doorstep.
Janie breaks down in tears. She can't believe Victor would think of her. Janie says "Thank You" and says, "God Bless All of You!" as she accepts the money.
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon! You could become our next playmaker!!
