Your Opinion: 'Angel' bestows generous gift

December 21st, 2011 by Dana Knierim, Jamestown in News

Dear Editor:

I would like to use this outlet as a way to express my thanks to the Kmart Lay-A-Way Angel.

I have been laid off for over six months, receiving minimal unemployment, along with many, many others, and have been struggling to ensure I was able to buy Christmas gifts for my grandchildren. I had used Kmart lay-a-way for its convenience and my ability to budget to buy a few gifts. I had waited until this coming week to pick up the lay-a-way.

Today, I was contacted by an employee of Kmart, informing me that the Kmart Lay-A-Way Angel had chosen to pay mine off, along with some others. After ensuring this was not a crank call, I broke down in tears.

This perfect stranger has proven that giving is better than receiving and I plan on paying this forward and hope the others who received this generous gift will do the same.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity; thank you Kmart Lay-Away Angel.
