Mystery Good Samaritan Pays Off Layaway Debt at Anniston Walmart

Christmas came early this year for many people with the help of a Good Samaritan. Hundreds of parents and guardians who had thousands of dollars’ worth of items on layaway at the Anniston Walmart no longer have to pay the rest of their debt, because a Good Samaritan did it for them.

As people went into to pay on their layaway balance, employees began bringing their items up to the front, notifying them that all of their debt had been paid. TV24 was there to capture some parents’ reactions as they realized the joys of Christmas.

It is unclear who the Good Samaritan is that paid off the layaway debt. Community members are hoping this will spark a chain reaction, encouraging others to do what they can, and give back this holiday season.
