NW woman pays Walmart layaway billsDecember 12, 2011 @ 9:37 am (Updated: 9:39 am - 12/12/11 )
In Yelm, Santa Claus is a woman with $5,000 cash.
A store employee tells me a woman walked into the Walmart yesterday in Yelm and started paying layaway customers' bills.
A store supervisor says no one recognized the woman as a local resident.
She went to the layaway department and asked if she could pay the bills of single moms who had toys on reserve for Christmas.
Next, the woman offered to pay for a bicycle a couple was planning on buying for a grandchild.
"It's encouraging to know there are nice people out there like that," a Walmart employee says.
