Dozens of Christians from an Evans church are making their way downtown to Ruben’s Department Store, where they’re paying down the layaway accounts of strangers this Christmas.
At least 25 people from Wesley United Methodist Church have come into the store since Monday, said Jeff Gorelick, owner of the store.
“They just keep coming, more and more of them,” Gorelick said. “It’s an incredible thing they’re doing.”
Some pay $20 to an account, but others close out the account entirely.
