MECHANICSBURG, Penn. (Dec. 17, 2014) – Thank you, “Santa B.”

Some Pennsylvania Walmart customers got the perfect holiday surprise when a man paid off all the remaining balances at a store in Mechanicsburg, reports WPMT.

On Monday, the man came in just before noon and said he wanted to take care of the remaining layaway balances. He presented the store with a check for $50,000. The money was enough to cover layaway for 100 families.

The store manager said it’s “unbelievable” that someone could be so generous.

The donor--who called himself "Santa B."--asked to remain anonymous.
