North Bergen, NJ – Pay Away the Layaway and NY Giants wide receiver Darius Slayton surprised 76 families at a Burlington in North Bergen, New Jersey on December 12, 2023.
54 families at a Citi Trends store in Mobile, AL and 38 families at a Burlington store in Lilburn, GA also received the incredible news their layaways were paid off thanks to a generous contribution from Slayton and his Left Hand Right Hand Foundation.
Slayton joined Pay Away volunteers to personally deliver the news that holiday layaway balances had been completely paid off in North Bergen. Recipients in Lilburn and Mobile received a video message from Slayton with the good news that they were able to bring their layaways home that day.
“I wanted to make the holidays a little bit easier at this time of year, I know it can be a struggle and a strain. This is my way of doing what I can to reach out to the community that helped raise me and give something back. Happy Holidays and be blessed!,” said Slayton.
A grateful recipient in Mobile said, “Thank you for paying off my layaway at Citi Trends. You made my day. I was wondering how I was going to pay it off. God sent an angel and it was you.”
