Secret Santa helps out Walmart customers

Posted: Updated:

A secret Santa decided to spread some holiday cheer by paying off people's layaway accounts at Walmart.  

It happened at a Walmart store in Anthem, AZ.  The store manager says the secret Santa walked in ready to shell out some doe for customers' Christmas layaway bills. 

Santa focused in on customers trying to pay off toys. 

The secret Santa ended up paying off layaway bills for 20 Walmart customers. Even workers were left speechless.  

"It's emotional for us too I mean some of the people that I work with in layaway when they see individuals come to pick-up their layaways their crying and they tell their story how it's helping them and it kind of gets my own associates choked up," said Walmart Manager Joe Malinconico. 

The Good Samaritan Santa remains anonymous.
