Drive-Thru Difference

YOU are the Drive-Thru Difference.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference in someone's day, this is the way to do it. It's simple too.

By actually being the Drive Thru Difference, you can easily brighten someones day, week, or who knows... you might even change their outlook on life.

Together we can impact our community in such a powerful way.

The concept is simple.

Print this note, then drive to the fast food or coffee place you like to visit... place your order... then, when you get to the drive thru window, kindly tell the cashier/window worker that you'd like to bless the person in the car behind you. At that point you pay for both orders and hand the worker the note you printed from this site.

In the end... you do something sweet for someone else, the window worker is blessed by seeing your spirit behind paying, and the person you paid for may also pay it forward the next time around. It's all about creating community and pointing others towards Jesus Christ in even the simplest of ways.

If you are ready to BE the Drive Thru Difference then print this form and see you at the drive thru soon!

We would love to hear your stories! You can call The Q 99.7 at 413-285-2997 or send us your story through the form below:

Drive Thru Difference Stories

Here are a few of the stories that we have received:

Erika - Somers, CT

So my boyfriend has joined the military and has been down in Georgia for the past three months and I was having a bad morning and thought some Dunkin donuts might cheer me up! So I went to the closest Dunkin down the road in Somers and ordered my favorite coffee and donut. I was so surprised and confused when the drive thru woman told me the car in Front of me had paid! I couldn't stop smiling all the way home! This has absolutely made my day! I would have loved to thank the woman, I beeped and waved at her as we drove separate ways but I'm not sure she noticed. THANK YOU! It's nice to know that genuine kindness still exists :)

Tina - Feeding Hills, MA

I just wanted to say thank you to the lady in front of me this moring at the Dunkin Donuts in West Springfield. I am at that drive thru almost every day and when I came through this morning, the cashier had told me that the women in front of me paid for my order, I was totally shocked and I never heard of the 'drive thru difference' until this morning. So I have no idea who you are, but I just wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU! I sure wish there were more people like you in the world today! Have a great day!

Nailya - Westfield, MA

On my way to my first class in the morning, I went into the Dunkin Donuts in Springfield and they gave me the wrong order, which I didn't realize until I got to college... So on my way back home from class, I went into the Dunkin Donuts in Westfield. While getting ready to pay for my order, the lady told me that the car that was in front of me paid for my order and gave me a piece of paper. This kind gesture put a smile on my face! Thank you to the owner of the white car that was in front of me today! 11/10/16 :)

Alla - Feeding Hills, MA

God has been working in my life recently and began changing me. Today was a long day, i did what i usually wouldnt do on a normal vacation day. i was planning to relax the whole day before work. To start my mom had to be brought to her appointment, and then i had to go to pick my brothers up from school. right up until the time i had to fly to work. i decided to to pull up into the dunkin donuts near work for some coffee to wake and energize myself up. when i pulled up to pay, the cashier said that the previous customer bought a gift card for the next person in line.. i didnt see who the car was because there was no body in front of me. this truly gave me hope and a sense that God was really trying to show me something.. that He is real!!! :) Thank you whoever u are! you have encouraged me to do the same to others and brighten their days!!!

Carol - Springfield, MA

Went to my customary DD drive thru on Monday May 20th and was pleasantly surprised to see that the woman ahead of me paid for my coffee. When the window attendant handed me the little slip of paper , I was dumbfounded. No complete stranger had ever done this for me before. I have done this in the past for someone who let me go ahead of them in the drive thru line on a busy morning. But never out of the blue had someone done this! This small gesture has renewed my faith. I only wish I had the chance to thank this lady in person!

Iris - Springfield, MA

I woke up at 3:30 in the morning to take my son to work. When I got back I sat on the driveway for a bit listening to a song that brought a lot of memories and tears because you see, I am a 45 year old widow. The song made me think about my husband and all the struggles I am going thru lately. So I sat there and cried for a bit. Then I got out of my car and went back in the house to get some more sleep before I have to get up again to go to work myself. I then get up around 7sh and get ready for work and head out to dunkin donuts for my morning coffee. When I got to the window, I was told that my coffee was already paid for and there was a very touching note attached to my coffee. It?s been a long time since I?ve felt my spirit genuinely lifted and I vowed for the rest of the day I would not let anything or anyone take that little bit of happiness that that note brought to me! And so I spoke it and it was a great day and night. Thank you so much for the kindness of the stranger in a white car that brought me to smile yesterday, and for your radio station for making it happen and passing the word.

Kim - West Springfield, CT

I have been wanting to do the drive through difference since it started, but I don't often go to drive-throughs, and honestly, I thought what if the person behind me had a huge order?? What would I do?? So yesterday I decided to .. paid for my iced tea, and saw a van pulling up behind me with several people in it. I then remembered that I had a DD gift card in my wallet that I had never used .. so told the girl at the window that I wanted to pay for their order. She said, well its a big one - are you sure? I handed her the gift card which took care of it. I have been very stressed lately, and this helped me stop thinking about my own problems for awhile. Definitely a win-win situation. I will do this again very soon! Thanks for thinking of this!

Margie - Suffield, CT

Yesterday 3/16, was not one of my best days. After a sleepless night with severe back pain, i ended up in the emergency room at St. Francis Hospital for treatment and sent home with medication. On the way home, my husband and best friend and I decided to swing through MacDonalds in Enfield,CT. When we approached the window to pay we were given a note that said our meal was paid for, no strings attached, promoted by q99.7. To us it was a God-Wink. A bad day suddenly turned into one of thanksgiving and encouragement knowing that there are people out there who care about others no matter who they are or what they are dealing with. I want to thank the stranger in the white car with Massachusetts plates for their caring spirit and generosity, and for q99.7
making it happen. You definitely made a difference in my day and I promise to pass it on when I am better. God Bless you All!

Sarah - West Springfield, MA

I was rushing to make it to work on time this morning and stopped for my morning coffee at McDonalds. I pulled through to pay the gentleman and he said, 'good morning, you're all set. The lady in front of you paid for you.' He gave me the letter and I read it. I thought wow, there are still kind people out there today. For that, I am looking to forward to returning the favor next time I'm at the drive thru. Thank you to the lady in the blue subaru! You made my morning!! I can't wait to make someone elses.

Sheyla - Springfield, MA

Today as usual I went to DD (Wilbraham, Ma)to buy my coffee in the morning to start the day ... In these past few days I've been going through some difficult times. So while waiting in line and listening to this radio station and beautiful praises, arriving at the window a cashier tells me that the person in front of me had paid for my coffee. I have to say, the emotion was so great that I tear' up!!! To you who today gave me great joy, God bless you and grant you the desires of your heart. Thank you brother/sister in Jesus Christ. PRAISE THE LORD!

Hope for Today
Don’t be selfish; don’t live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself. Don’t just think about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and in what they are doing.
