Kmart has had 20 to 25 anonymous donors this year.
LEWISTON, ID - More than $1,800 has been donated to help community members pay off layaway debts at the Lewiston Kmart.

Salvation Army volunteer, Anthony Amoss said this is a wonderful contribution.

"And it is just a wonderful feeling because then people that cannot receive money or give, then we can help," said Amoss.

The money is given by anonymous benefactors to help those who are unable to pay for their presents before Christmas. Kmart General Store Manager Loren Peavey said she gets choked up every time someone comes in to make a donation.

"It is just a great outpouring of warmth in the community," said Peavey. "We have had 20 to 25 angels come in to pay off layaways and make payments and the recipients have just been overwhelmed."

Margo and Melvin Karn were very impressed after they heard about the Kmart angels.

"Well we have always given for Christmas donations and we thought this is just incredibly great for the kids," said Margo.

If you too would like become a Christmas angel, you can stop by any Kmart to make your donation.
