MECHANICSBURG, Pa -- A man only wanting to be known as "Santa B." gave dozens of families a Christmas miracle on Monday.

Monday was the last day of layaway pickup at the Walmart in Mechanicsburg. Just before noon, a man came in and said he wanted to pay off the entirety of all remaining layaway balances.

The anonymous "Santa" gave the store a check for $50,000, which covered the layaway balances for 100 families.

"It’s a miracle for not just us but for so many people,” customer Brittny Coeyman, who had $280 remaining on her balance, told WPMT. “And there’s nothing else I could ask for for Christmas.”
