Group pays off layaway balances at Norfolk Navy Exchange

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Some layaway angels visited the Norfolk Navy Exchange Monday.

The nonprofit organization, Pay Away the Layaway, surprised 28 military families.

Last week, the families received a call about a raffle, in which one lucky winner would have their layaway paid off. Those families got there and were given an envelope. There were no raffle tickets inside, though. Instead, there was cash.

Each family had their layaway paid off! The group spent around $3,500 paying off the balances.
