The woman, identified only as Santa B, went to the town’s Walmart on Wednesday and gave the service desk a cashier’s check for $46,265.59, The Bedford County Free Press reported.

That was enough to pay off all 194 layaway accounts. 

Walmart’s corporate offices said that ‘Santa B’ has done this before and that this is the third year that the woman and the man who signs the checks have shared the Christmas spirit in the Keystone State, WTAJ reported.

One woman who claimed she was a benefactor of the goodwill said she had complications from surgery and wasn’t sure how she was going to get the items out of layaway.
