Perry is not the first person at any of the Walmart locations across the nation to play “Secret Santa,” and help families and individuals in need during the Christmas season.
ATLANTA — Tyler Perry is spreading holiday cheer in his city of Atlanta.
Perry shared a video on Twitter announcing that he paid off all the layaways at two Walmart stores on Thursday.
A Walmart spokeswoman confirmed to CNN the actor and filmmaker paid off $432,635 worth of layaway items at two stores in the Atlanta metro area.
“I know it’s a hard time, a lot of people are struggling and I’m just really, really grateful to be able to be in a position to do this,” Perry said in the video, adding that his intention had originally been for his contribution to remain anonymous.
