Secret Santa Shoppers are Layaway Angels

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Secret Santa's and angels have been stopping by businesses to pay for other people's layaway items.

Some workers said this holiday season is fun, and exciting because they've had several secret Santa's and angels come in.

Kmart Co-manager, Deanne Munson said people are secretly paying for full or partial carts. All in all, the angels have paid for about $4,000 worth of items set aside by others.

"Which is really great because we have a lot of parents that say that they wouldn't even have Christmas without layaway and so then when a secret Santa comes in and pays off their layaway is a really big blessing for that family and they really appreciate it."

Munson said some families couldn't afford gifts this year so it's enjoyable to see others take care of paying for the gifts.
