A couple of very special secret Santas are truly in the spirit of giving this holiday season.
Over the past two days, two men have stopped at a K-Mart in Jackson to payoff some of the Christmas gifts people had on lay-away. Between the two of them, these Santas paid off more than $500 worth of layaway items.
About 15 people in the Jackson area got a call Monday telling them all of their layaway had been paid off except for one dollar, all because of two generous men.
"I call him Santa Claus because people just don't think to do that anymore. And it's just great that it happens. I was so appreciative to him, so thankful," said Cherie Zakrzewski, assistant manager.
The first secret Santa came in last night with $450 dollars on hand. He went through the layaway list and decided to pay off gifts that were headed back to the shelves after having a missed payment.
"It's just touched me, very much so. I just think it's so fantastic that there are people out there that are going to take care of other people, not even caring who it is," said Zakrzewski.
The staff here were already surprised at the generosity of one man, but then this morning another came in and gave $100.
"Which really shocked me. It was so great," said Zakrzewski.
The two secret Santas did have one request for the people they helped. They want them to pay it forward.
"They would like for you to do one thing in the future though. Do something nice for somebody else. That's all they ask," said Zakrzewski.
The secret Santas hope the give they gave will keep on giving.
This is the first time something like this has happened at the Jackson K-Mart, but the manager says she's heard of it happening at other stores across Michigan.
