ANTHEM, Ariz. (CNN/KNXV) - A secret Santa decided to spread some holiday cheer by paying off people's layaway accounts at the Anthem, Ariz., Walmart.
The store manager said the secret Santa walked in ready to shell out some cash for customers' Christmas layaway bills.
Santa focused in on customers trying to pay off toys and ended up paying off layaway bills for 20 Walmart customers. Even workers were left speechless.
"It's emotional for us, too," said Walmart Manager Joe Malinconico. "I mean, some of the people that I work with in layaway, when they see individuals come to pick up their layaways, they're crying. And they tell their story, how it's helping them. And it kind of gets my own associates choked up."
The Good Samaritan Santa remains anonymous.
The holiday season is often a happy one for the whole family, but for those grieving the loss of a loved one it can be a difficult time of the year. One local family is carrying on the memory of their son during the holidays.
