Layaway angels surprise Virginia shoppers

- Some shoppers got an early Christmas surprise Tuesday morning when their layaway balances were paid off by “layaway angels.”

The organization Pay Away the Layaway helped out 17 different customers at Burlington Coat Factory in Falls Church by paying off about $1,400 worth of merchandise.

“I thought it was a joke at first -- I’m not going to lie -- but when I got here it’s totally real, and I think it’s amazing what they’re doing,” said Alexandria resident Shante Smith.

The organization raises money online and uses those funds to pay off layaway balances for things like clothes, coats, toys and games for children.
