A man who hopes to remain anonymous walked into the Casper Kmart earlier this week and made the holidays a lot brighter for many of the store's customers.

The man reportedly paid $5,000 towards items other customers had put on layaway -- a big gesture that is sure to have an even bigger impact for the folks he helped.

Evidently, this sort of thing is an annual tradition for the man, though it's not clear whether he returns to the same store or even gives in the same way each year. The store declined to comment.

But one thing's for sure: Casper is fortunate to have this mysterious good samaritan -- and others like him -- who remain so dedicated to our community.
