The Times recently ran a report of an anonymous donor(s) who paid off a number of layaway balances at K-Mart in LaPorte. According to the story, donors have been paying down layaway accounts in Indiana, Michigan, Iowa and Nebraska. A K-Mart representative stated that people have been paying down balances on layaway accounts that were close to delinquency as long as the account had at least one toy. The recipients of the donors' generosity felt like their holiday prayers have been answered.
It is nice to see local people getting involved in the community and helping others in need. We Salute the generosity of the “layaway angels,” and wish everybody a happy and healthy holiday season.
