SUMTER COUNTY, FL (WFTV/CNN) - A man brought a lot of holiday cheer to some Walmart customers Thursday.

He donated $20,000 to go toward layaway balances for nearly 80 people. Employees said the man was shopping for a charity event when he decided to make the donation.

"This one girl, she just broke down in tears," said Walmart assistant manager Deb Davis. "I mean, she was crying. She was just so happy."

Walmart stated the man paid off about a half-dozen accounts in full and half the balances for several others with accounts of $200 or more.
