Mystery man 'Santa B' pays $50,000 of Pennsylvania Wal-Mart layaway tickets
Santa has himself a healthy staff of elves -- that's a fact. He's apparently got some cash to spare as well.
"I'm just calling to let you know we had a good Samaritan come in today, and they paid off your layaways so you just got to come in and pick it up," a Wal-Mart employee tells a customer.
That was the scene at a Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, area Wal-Mart Monday.
"We look at these layaway angels, you hear about it, but this is so generous that it's unbelievable that somebody could do that," store manager Steve Myers said.
The man only wanted to be identified as "Santa B." Customer Brittny Coyman says she was reluctantly preparing to return some of the gifts she had on layaway, but when she went into the Wal-Mart.
"I actually walked into the bathroom and cried when they handed me money, a few dollars back and just told me it was completely paid off," she said.
The mystery man is from the area, according to The Patriot News, and paid off about 100 tickets in total. The store manager says people have made $2,000-$3,000 donations before, but never anything like this.
Stories of surprise donations are happening all across the nation in the midst of the holiday season -- someone donated $20,000 for layaways just last week to a Massachusetts Toys R Us.
Many of the Harrisburg-area Wal-Mart customers thanked "Santa B" over and over in their interviews. As far as we know, the delivery schedule for Santa C. won't be affected.
