Don Parker Pays It Forward: 02/11/2013


Pay It Forward is on the road this week. We set up with our Pay It Forward sign in downtown Slaton on the city square. 

It only took a few moments for someone to recognize our sign. Don Parker happened to be on his lunch break when he spotted us on the square.

Don has a co-worker that he wants to help out and has chosen Cody Marlar as this week's recipient of $300.

Don tells us that Cody is home sick and could use the extra help for his medical needs and his family.  Don explains that Cody and his wife work hard and have a hard time staying ahead. He really feels that the Marlar family would appreciate the assistance.

We drive to the Marlar House in Slaton. We knock on the front door and Cody answers. Cody has just been to the dentist where a wisdom tooth is causing him great pain. Don counts out $300 to Cody. Cody is very appreciative and explains that he will have to take care of his wisdom tooth soon. He says he will spend the money taking care of his family and his wisdom tooth.

Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon! You may become our next playmaker!!
