With Some Help From Ofc. Derby, Slater And Marjo Start A ‘Pay It Forward’ Line At Dunkin’ In Pittsfield
The topic of "paying it forward" continued to get airtime Tuesday on Slater and Marjo In The Morning when Pittsfield Police officer Darren Derby went live on location at the East St. location of Dunkin'.
The subject came up as of late when Slater shared his story of asking how much the guy's order was behind him this summer when someone had paid it forward to him. Sgt. Marc Maddelena also shared his thanks to someone who had paid for his children's munchkins.
Always game for doing something fun and helpful for the community, Derby posted to his own Facebook page the following.
We are all feeling the effects of last week, no matter what your position is. I, like many of you, have turned off all social media and did my best not to watch the news.
Trying to put some spirit back into the community, I gladly teamed up with Live 95.9 this morning and started a pay-it-forward conga line at one of our local Dunkin' s live on air. Witnessing someone's reaction when they roll up and find out the person in front of them paid for their order is a wonderful thing. 1/2 hr later and it's still going!
Whether you are the recipient or the do-gooder, it leaves you with a beautiful feeling that no doubt you have been missing since the start of Covid 1 yr ago. If you are in a position to pay-it-forward, don't hesitate. -Ofc. Derby
