Layaway Angels Help Local Families


By Aimee Burnett

Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Christmas is coming early for some in our community thanks to the generosity of a few.

Layaway Angels, or so they're called, are paying off customer's layaway bills at K-Mart in Twin Falls.

The store has had $2,500 in purchases paid off this holiday season.

Just one of those people donated $1,000, helping out about five different families.

So what’s the response been?

"Stunned, very appreciative, lots of tears, lots of tears back there," said Bonnie Bratuvold, K-Mart Store Manager, Twin Falls.

The most targeted items people ask to pay off are children’s toys and clothing.

This is the second year layaway angels have been helping out at the store.
