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.”
