Local group pays off Christmas layaways at Wichita Kmart

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Some lucky Kmart shoppers received a special holiday treat on Tuesday.

A local group, called the One Spark Foundation, went looking to inspire people to show kindness to others in their everyday lives.

The foundation paid off more than $40,000 worth of layaway bills for unsuspecting customers.

Sponsors say it’s all about giving back.

“As you walk around people are skeptical and cynical, and then we were walking together and a gal came up and gave me $20 to pay for someone else’s layaway. That’s why we do it,” said David Hill, One Spark Foundation.

This is the third year in a row the foundation has paid off layaway bills.

They hope to do it for many years to come.
