Attention Walmart shoppers, there’s some generosity brewing in the Layaway Department.
Two anonymous donors paid off layaway accounts at the East Meadow , according to Zamaranee Valentine, a manager at the store.
"We have received two donations thus far," Valentine said. "Each of them helped multiple people in need."
Valentine added that she hopes to see more donations throughout the week, and she commended the "Secret Santas" for their generosity.
"We call them Secret Santas," she added. "They want to stay anonymous, and it's great to see that they are stepping up for those who could use support."
So-called “Layaway Angels” are popping up across the country, with Walmart being one of the last national retail chains to offer layaway with few restrictions. According to corporate officials, Walmart has been seeing donations like this from coast to coast - including at the nearby location.
"It has happened as far west as Washington and as far east as New York," she said. "It's something Walmart really takes pride in."
