CARBONDALE -- Store managers at JC Penney got in on the Pay It Forward campaign.

News 3 followed manager Joe Womick as he handed out four gift cards to random customers. He gave another woman $50 to get her hair done at the store's salon.

That customer, Jada Rodriguez, says she loves seeing people do things out of the kindness of their heart.

"I'm the same way. I like to do for other people, too. So it's good that people give back and are nice to each other, especially in this world we live in."

All together JC Penney's gave away $250 to customers.
