This week's Pay It Forward segment starts out along Milwaukee Avenue near Spur 327. After a couple of minutes, John Cook pulls into a nearby parking lot. John has seen Pay It Forward in the past.
John explains that a family in Central Lubbock could use a helping hand. He knows a family who has had medical bills and numerous expenses to take care of. We follow John to the William's residence where we meet Joyce Williams.
When we arrive, Joyce is completely surprised and in shock. John takes $300 and hands it to Joyce who is overwhelmed. Joyce explains that she has had medical expenses and could use the assistance to help pay medical bills.
Joyce thanks God for the extra blessing and also thanks John and everyone involved with Pay It Forward for making her day a little brighter. She gives John a hug and thanks everyone involved.
Afterwards, John said it felt good to help Joyce out. He hoped that the money would help out with her medical needs. Joyce sent a card to let us know that the money was spent on blood tests and medication refills and wanted everyone to know that she will be OK.
