This week's "Pay It Forward" segment starts out in North Lubbock along the Clovis Highway. We set up near Clovis Road and Avenue U searching for a playmaker to help someone who could use a helping hand.
It doesn't take long for Rick Rodriguez and his wife to recognize our sign. Rick turns around and approaches us. After thinking about it for a moment, he tells us that he knows a very special lady who is in a wheelchair and lives a few blocks away. Rick feels led to help this woman out.
After following Rick a few blocks, we come to her house where we surprise Lucille Patterson. Lucille is in wheelchair and has many bills to pay. Lucille is excited and thanks Rick for helping her out. She hugs everyone and tells us that she could really use the money right now.
Afterwards, Rick tells us that it felt wonderful to help Lucille out. He thanked God that everyone came together at exactly the right time to help Lucille out when she needed it the most.
Be looking for our "Pay It Forward" sign soon. You may become our next playmaker who helps someone in need.
