KCCI viewer Katherine Gamble reports that at least 50 people joined a spontaneous "pay it forward" effort Friday morning in Johnston.
Gamble said she was the 50th person to pay for the coffee for the car behind them in line at the Starbucks location at 5250 86th Street.
"It's great to see the holiday spirit even during these hard economic times," said Gamble, in an email to KCCI.
Store workers said 53 people joined the effort during the morning coffee rush. It started when the a man told an employee at the drive through to use a $20 bill to pay for as many people behind him in line as possible, others then kept the effort going.
