Anonymous donor pays for couple’s Christmas gifts
WARWICK (AP) — A Rhode Island couple says a mysterious donor paid off their layaway balance on Christmas gifts for their children.
Joshua and Kyla Turbitt, of Warwick, tell WPRI-TV they had only made one of three payments on items at Toys R Us for their two young children.
“We came here you know on a little bit of a budget, trying to be careful what we spend,” Joshua said.
The Turbitts say they were planning on making another payment the weekend of Dec. 1 when the manager of the store called to say their layaway was completely paid off.
“They told us that someone had paid our layaway off and we were like, you know, very shocked,” Joshua said. “My wife started balling her eyes out, literally, she got the phone call, she had to catch her breath for like 30 seconds and then she finally told us.”
