An anonymous donor paid off nearly $65,000 of layaway items at the Walmart in Bristol, Tennessee.
Walmart says the $64,995.51 donation that was made on Monday was enough to cover the store’s entire layaway balance.
“I got a notification on my email that my layaway had been paid for,” said shopper Lloyd Leonard. “And I thought ‘well that’s kind of weird’.”
Leonard was informed by management that the anonymous donation had covered his layaway fees.
“She said yeah somebody came in this morning at 6 o’clock and paid everybody’s layaway,” Leonard told WJHL. “But he wants me to tell you that he loves you, God bless you and Merry Christmas.”
According to Walmart management, the anonymous donor wanted to positively affect as many people as possible.
