Some Walmart patrons in Kalispell, Montana, received a special surprise this week when an anonymous "Secret Santa" purchased layaway items for unsuspecting customers.

Walmart Store Manager Phillip Colby says the man purchased more than $3,000 in layaway accounts for families in need.

Colby says this is an annual tradition for the anonymous gift giver who wishes to keep his identity a secret.

“He very much wished to stay anonymous, he made that known at the very beginning, he didn’t want to make a big deal, he just wanted to lend what help he could to those in need,” said Colby.

Colby adds, the anonymous gift giver is not a native of Kalispell, but just wishes to help out the community as much as he can.
