Christmas has come early for around 200 families in Pennsylvania. An anonymous donor settled around $40,000 worth of layaway holiday gift bills at a Walmart store in Everett over the weekend.
The kind-hearted stranger, whom store staff lovingly nicknamed “Santa B,” pulled a similarly generous stunt at the same outlet last year. How cool is that!?
Kristen Martin, who’d put her children’s Christmas presents on layaway this year, told NBC-affiliate WJAC-TV how much the gesture meant to her:
“I think it means more to me, but I think they’ll (her children) be happy. I remember when I was growing up for Christmas. I was just telling my mom the other day that I want my kids to have Christmas like that.”
As the countdown to the holiday season continues, similar acts of generosity have also taken place in other parts of the country.
