Pay it Forward 2/21/2013

WEST PENSACOLA  --  Pay it Forward highlights the generosity of our gulf coast community.
It starts with Lena Deflores, a sign, 500 dollars and our partner, Hill-Kelly Dodge Chrysler Jeep and ends with a surprise.

"We're back! We're looking for someone who needs our help and hopefully we'll find someone who can introduce us to that person."

The rules are the same.
"If you know someone who is going through a rough time and needs a little help, we'd love to surprise them with 500 dollars, if they're available right now."

Sometimes finding the right person can be a challenge.
And sometimes, it's easy.

"I have some neighbors that live across the street from me that could use a little help."
Kathy told us about her neighbors of 10 years, brothers John and Jimmy.
"They could just use the extra money for groceries."

"Their mother just went into a nursing home so it's hard for them."
Neighbors helping neighbors is what Pay it Forward is all about.
So we called Miles Bentley with Hill-Kelly Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram to meet us in West Pensacola with $500.
"Hey, Jimmy, how you doin'? Can I talk to you for a minute?"

"I had to think of somebody I knew that could use a little bit of financial help and you came to mind."

"I know times are hard."
"How great is that?"
And then Jimmy got the helping hand he and his brother needed.
"On behalf of Hill-Kelly Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, I'd like to give you this money so that you can Pay it Forward to your friend."

"Maybe that will help you." "Well, it will and I want to thank you." "You're welcome. I didn't think of nobody but you."
"What a miracle."
Special thank you to our partner, Hill-Kelly Dodge Chrysler Jeep for making 'Pay It Forward' possible.   
And be sure to keep an eye out for Lena and her sign as Channel Three continues to Pay it Forward.
