– Twelve local families got the surprise of the season Friday when they learned their entire layaway accounts at a Mableton K-Mart would be paid off in full. The payments were made by “Pay Away the Layaway”. The charity raises money to pay for items for families put into layaway. The group picked families whose accounts were made up of at least 90 percent children’s items such as toys and who were making an effort to pay off the accounts themselves.
