Anonymous donors have been visiting Walmarts this holiday season and paying off the stores’ entire layaways.

A donor in Ohio visited two local Walmarts and paid off the layway of each store, a total of more than $106,000.

A man known as “Santa B” paid off about $180,000 of layaway items in two stores in Pennsylvania, according to the retail giant.

In Florida, Walmart confirmed with store managers at the Chiefland Supercenter and Lake City Supercenter in Gainesville that $200,000 was paid off by the same anonymous donor on Monday. It was a $100,000 donation at each store.

Walmart spokesman Wyatt Jefferies said in a statement:

“Christmas is a time of year when people go above and beyond to give back to their neighbors and communities. When customers anonymously pay off others’ layaway items we’re reminded of the amazing things people will do to support each other.”
