About Pay Away the Layaway

Pay Away the Layaway is a registered 501(c)3 non profit organization founded in 2011. Our mission is to inspire hope and help families pay off layaway balances that include gifts for their children, such as games, toys, books, backpacks, clothes and coats.

When you make a donation to our organization, you become a Layaway Angel! Collectively, we are able to crowd fund donations and visit stores across the country to surprise families and make a real difference.

Who We Are

We represent you! Pay Away the Layaway is an organization that represents the thousands of people who donate to our website every year. We use the donated funds to help families purchase gifts and essentials for their children.

We invite you to join the “Layaway Angel” movement by making a donation today on our website or visiting your local Kmart, Walmart, Burlington Coat Factory or Toys R Us/Babies R Us and visiting the layaway counter to surprise a family by making a payment on their layaway balance.

What We Do

Pay Away the Layaway visits cities all over the United States during both Back to School and the Holiday season and surprises families by paying off the remaining balance of their layaway. We only pay off layaway balances that include gifts for kids including books, backpacks, toys, games, blankets, clothes and coats.

Through the donations we receive from our “Layaway Angels” all over the world, we are able to make a huge difference in the lives of families and put a big smile on the faces of their children!
