There’s nothing like getting in the Christmas spirit! Giving of your time, talent and resources for the betterment of others.
But in these times, the Christmas spirit is a little hard to find. But one man who wishes to remain anonymous was feeling it and decided to play Secret Santa — big time.
An anonymous donor visited two Ohio Walmarts recently, spreading holiday cheer by paying off the stores’ entire layaways.
Steelyard Commons in Cleveland had about $70,000 in layaway goods and the store in Lorainhad about $36,000, which means the donor paid a total of more than $106,000, Walmart says.
Walmart spokesman Wyatt Jefferies said in a statement, “Christmas is a time of year when people go above and beyond to give back to their neighbors and communities. When customers anonymously pay off others’ layaway items we’re reminded of the amazing things people will do to support each other.”
Walmart has recently seen more examples of generosity in different areas of the U.S.
A man, known as “Santa B,” paid off about $180,000 of layaway items in two stores in Pennsylvania, according to the retail giant.
In Florida, Walmart confirmed with store managers at the Chiefland Supercenter and Lake City Supercenter in Gainesville that $200,000 was paid off by the same anonymous donor on Monday. It was a $100,000 donation at each store, according to Jefferies.
In a nationwide poll, the top three things people do after becing debt free or paying off debt is spend more time with family and focus on their health.
Thank you “mystery man”! We see you!
