Retailers for nationwide impact

We help families pay off layaway balances that include children’s items, like games, toys, books, backpacks, clothing and coats.

Back-to-School Support

Families and caregivers are spending more than ever on back-to-school supplies. Layaway programs offer a way for families to select supplies like backpacks, notebooks, clothing and electronics, and then gradually pay for them in installments. 

We believe every student should feel confident, prepared, and empowered with the supplies they need to succeed in school. We partner with major retailers like Burlington, Citi Trends, as well as Army, Air Force and Navy Exchange stores to pay off layaway balances nationwide. 

With the help of dedicated supporters, Pay Away the Layaway guarantees children are well-prepared for school, and eases financial strain on parents and caregivers by paying off layaway balances before the start of the school year.

Holiday Layaways

Every year, stores offer layaway programs that let people pay for items over time. Thousands of families across the country purchase children’s gifts on layaway.

Thanks to generous supporters, Pay Away the Layaway visits stores and surprises families by paying off their remaining layaway balances.
We partner with major retailers like Burlington and Citi Trends, as well as the Army and Air Force Exchange and Navy Exchange to  pay off layaways for children and families nationwide. Our support has made a difference for over 15,000 families, guaranteeing them the joy of opening presents during the holidays.
