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!

Marisol - Springfield, MA

What a wonderful Morning, Thank You Jesus and Q99.7 for all you do... I want to start by saying I did the drive through defference today for someone at the DD drive through. what a rush, it was so exciting. someone did that for me, on a day that I was feeling so sad, that person made my day and it brought tears of joy to my eyes. So I wanted to bless someone else.

David Tefft - Holyoke, ma

I was up earlier than normal this morning to create tests for my students at William J Dean Technical High School. Figuring I needed a little upper I ordered a coffee from McDonald's near Exit 15 off I 91 in Holyoke. When I pulled up to the window to pay I was handed a ticket saying my order had been paid for and was handed a ticket. I deeply appreciate this kind soul for doing this. It uplifted my mood and knowing there is someone who cares about everyone is deeply special and appreciated. Needless to say the task of creating tests, which is a rather boring task was made better this morning. Thank you to whoever did this.

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.

Darlene - West Springfield, MA

Just wanted to say thanks to the car in front of me that paid for my drinks on Wed. April 30 at McDonalds in West Springfield. Kind of reminds you that there are still nice people in the world after so many horrible things happening. Thanks again and have a great day.

Robert - Enfield, CT

On Monday, while at a Dunkin Donuts in Enfield at the drive threw window when I pulled up to the window the girl at the window told me that the person in front of me paid for my order. The girl at the window handed me a paper with Q99.7 on it. It said that they heard about this being done and they wanted to pass it on and do something nice for some one. I just wanted to say it made my day and put a smile on my face. So today at that same Dunkin Donuts I passed it on to someone else and I hope it did for them what it did for me on Monday. So God bless to all!

Markus - ,

I was at dunkin dounuts on my way to work and I was mad and grumpy I was picking up breakfeast for me and my friends/(coworkers) I knew it would cost quite a bit so I was dreading getting to the cashier but then when I get there he hands me a note saying "I paid for you today. No strings attached" It made my day that was dark stormy and grumpy into a rainbow filled sunshiny greatest day I've had in a long while!! So for whoever paid for me I want to say thank you so much and may God bless your heart and soul for me. Thank you again from the man in the car behind you!!

Teresa - Wilbraham, MA

I went to Chick-Fil-A this afternoon for lunch with a friend. While in line I noticed a serviceman sitting having lunch alone. My friend decided to grab a seat which happened to be next the the gentleman. I decided to buy him a gift card and attach the drive thru difference note. I explained to the cashier that I needed her to deliver it for me, but please don't tell him who did it. She thought it was an awesome idea. I proceeded to get my lunch and sat down. He made a phone call and read the note to the caller. A few minutes later two more servicemen walked in and were engaged in conversation about the drive thru difference note...so up to register I went and did it for them to! It truly was an honor to pay for lunch for our servicemen, a simple thank you for all that they do! I love doing the drive thru difference but it was really awesome to see the recipients reactions :)

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!!!

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 :)

Carrie - West Springfield, MA

I was in line at the Dunkin Donuts drive thru this morning on Riverdale Road in West Springfield. I went to pay for my order and the girl said 'no' I said 'what' she said 'the lady ahead of you paid for you this morning' I said 'really???!!' She laughs 'yes, and here is a note she told me to give you'. 'WOW' I said. That was so nice of that person. It did make my day because this week has been bad for me. I had a major headache on monday, my husband was at hospital on Wed for a seizure like episode and yesterday my son had chest pain.....Thank you for your kindness 'the car ahead of me'.
