AVON, Ohio - Secret Santas have been paying off bills for strangers across the country, and the generosity of the Good Samaritans continued to spread into northeast Ohio over the weekend.
On Saturday, the Avon Walmart said an anonymous do-gooder handed the layaway clerk his credit card to pay off items on the layaway tab.
The store manager told the Chronicle-Telegram the anonymous donor couldn't choose just one or two families, so he took care of the entire $8,800 bill.
The Avon Secret Santa told Walmart's manager he read an article recently that spoke to his heart and he felt moved to help make a difference this holiday season.
Walmart's manager told the newspaper customers were in tears and shock when employees called to tell them their layaway gifts had been anonymously paid in full.
