Berkshires man paying it forward at local Cumberland Farms

A man in the Berkshires is asking others to pay it forward.

Rob Ball tells NewsChannel 13 he will go to the Cumberland Farms on 1st Street in Pittsfield from time to time and chat with one of the clerks for an hour or so.

While there, he also pays for the beverages of every customer that goes through the line.

Ball says it doesn’t matter if someone is rich or poor. He says he actually lives paycheck to paycheck.

He says he got the idea just before the pandemic, after the lady ahead of him paid for his coffee.

He says he’s sharing his story hoping others do the same.
