BOHEMIA - A Secret Santa paid off a $300 layaway bill for a struggling Bohemia family.

Ann Salvi says she went to her local Wal-Mart to pay for the items and learned someone had already taken care of it.

Salvi says she was planning on cutting into her rent money to pay the bill, and that her family has been facing financial difficulty.

But then a Wal-Mart employee told her that she was one of the "lucky ones" a good Samaritan decided to pay for this Christmas.

The Salvis say they want to thank the mystery Secret Santa and that they plan to pay it forward.
