Last year layaway angels visited business across the country anonymously paying off people’s layaways. But this year, the KMart in Derry Township is wondering, where have all the angels gone ?
” It was nice because there were people who really needed the help. They would come in with their stories and find out that it was paid off, it was the only Christmas they were going to have, ” says Liz Rothermel, Human Resource Manager
Rothermel says she’s not sure if it’s the economy or lack of press that is keeping the angels away. But either way it’s disappointing, and that there are people who really need the help. There’s still time to help someone out this holiday season. All you have to do is head to the layaway counter and request to be an angel.
