Local Businesses Join Forces with Layaway Santa Campaign

MACON, Georgia(41NBC/WMGT)-Well it looks like Christmas won’t be cancelled after all, thanks to a few of Santa’s helpers.

Middle Georgia’s Layaway Santa campaign is partnering with several local businesses to create some holiday magic for families across Macon.

“This is the first year we’ve branched out and done a business component and the response we’re getting of people just being willing to help even if its just as simple as putting out a tip jar is just great….every dollar helps,” said Layaway Santa organizer Chris Floore.

Travis Jean is just one of the businesses working alongside Layaway Santa organizers to collect donations for families struggling to pay off accounts for Christmas gifts on layaway. Others include Joe D’s on Ingleside and Pin Strikes Macon. Now, the Macon Mayhem hockey team is also joining in on this opportunity to give back.

 According to Floore, organizers have already passed the halfway mark for their goal this year to raise $4000-a thousand dollar increase from last year’s goal.
