This week's Pay It Forward segment begins along 82ND Street just west of University Avenue. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign searching for this week's playmaker.
It only took a couple of minutes for Debbie Hill to spot our sign. Debbie ran to our sign from a business parking lot nearby. Debbie immediately knew someone that could use the help.
Debbie's mother passed away this year. One of her caretakers was Judy Wall. Judy helped take care of Debbie's mother each day and was her mother's favorite caretaker.
Debbie wanted to return the favor by choosing to "Pay It Forward" to Judy. It took awhile to locate Judy. She was not at work that day. Once we were able to locate her via phone, we ventured to Judy's house in Lubbock.
When we arrived, Judy was just returning home. Debbie surprised Judy at her front door. Judy was completely overwhelmed. She broke into tears and gave Debbie a big hug as Debbie counted out $300 to Pay It Forward.
Judy thanked Debbie and everyone involved. Judy said it came at just the right time as she recently lost her job. Judy told us that it was a true blessing because she really needed it.
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon. You may become our next playmaker!
