BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - 25 families received an early holiday surprise on Tuesday when an unidentified man spent $5,000 and paid the balance of their layaway bills at the North Buffalo Kmart.

"He basically asked I want to help people who are having trouble paying off their layaways," said store manager Larry Muscoreil. "So we pulled our report and looked at who was struggling with their payments. He helped them out."

Who is the Secret Santa?

"Of course the gentleman who did it this morning does not want anyone to know his name," he added.
