Secret Santa pays off layaways at Michigan Walmart

A Secret Santa paid off the layaway accounts for multiple people at the Midland Walmart Monday, WNEM reported.

One woman had about $230 worth of gifts held by the store. But employees at the store texted the woman and said that the account was almost paid in full. All she had to contribute was a penny, according to WNEM.
