Layaway angels surprise families with holiday donations

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A few families received a holiday surprise courtesy of Pay Away the Layaway at Kmart on Tuesday.

Officials from the charitable organization say they had a successful evening on Hertel Avenue, making a special holiday for families with existing layaway balances.

The organization is able to make its magic happen through donations from those who visit the website from across the nation.

With help from professional athletes, the group travels to larger cities across the nation. The group relied on Aaron Williams and Jordan Mills from the Buffalo Bills and the Sheridan Medical Group in Buffalo who volunteered money and time to help make the appearance happen.
