Houston, TX – 107 families were surprised by Pay Away and the Pete & Thomas Foundation at a Citi Trends in Houston on December 17, 2023.
One recipient gratefully said, “Thank you for making this Christmas a little bit more special and easier for us. Thank you so much!”
Another recipient’s daughter had just been released from the ICU. Her entire layaway contained presents for her grandchildren, who are staying with her while their mother recovers.
Pay Away’s mission is to spread joy and kindness to families. For over 10 years, the organization has surprised unsuspecting families by paying off their layaway balances across the country.
