Tis the season to be jolly!
NFL player Khalil Mack just spread a little holiday cheer by paying off all the layaway accounts at his hometown Walmart in Florida, reports CBS News.
The Chicago Bears linebacker took care of the tab at a Walmart in Fort Pierce, Florida through his organization, the Khalil Mack Foundation. The organization focuses on providing for the community, under-privileged youth and families through various initiatives. The store took to social media to thank Mack for his generosity.
“We have some wonderful News! If you have an active Holiday Layaway account at your local Ft. Pierce Wal-Mart, you account has been paid off! We here at Walmart would like to thank the Khalil Mack Foundation for your generosity, and for making so many families happy for the holidays! Everyone is truly grateful for everything you have done for them!,” Walmart wrote.
“His foundation came to us and said he wanted to be a secret Santa,” store manager Mathias Libardi said. Mack took care of accounts for 300 families totaling about $80,000. This is not the first time he has given back in his hometown either. This past summer, the pro-bowler also donated 100 pairs of cleats to a local football team in Fort Pierce.
Thank you for all you do Khalil! Happy Holidays!
