CBS 3's 'Pay It Forward' nominated for New England Emmy

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

"Pay It Forward," a CBS 3 initiative that allows Western Massachusetts residents to make a difference in the lives of others, has been nominated for a 2013 Boston/New England Emmy award in the "Feature News Report - Light Series" category.

The "Pay It Forward" program features inspiring stories of people helping their neighbors by nominating them to receive much-needed cash. This past December, CBS 3 viewers "paid it forward" to a mom facing aggressive breast cancer, a caregiver, an out-of-work mother with a child in neonatal intensive care and a family who had made several trips to the hospital to care for their daughter's unusual illness.

"Pay It Forward" is currently on hiatus but will be returning later this year with new ways for you to give back to your friends and neighbors.

The winners of the Boston/New England Emmy awards will be announced in early June.
