And Doug Flutie — yes, the former NFL quarterback — might have handed it to you.

"The goal is paying it forward. Then that person pays it forward to a person and another person and another person, and all of a sudden we have this entire community that's building strength and doing good," said Quincy Miller, Eastern Bank president.
