West Virginia Santa Clause pays off house for woman in need

National News

WEST VIRGINIA (KXAN) — The holidays are the season for giving, and one man in a red suit is doing just that, spreading jubilee and paying off taxes.

As he made a list and checked it twice one West Virginian brought ‘Santa Claus’ to town, to continue a five-year tradition of giving one house away to a family in need for Christmas. 

“Living water to living water comes in, but it’s to flow through us, not to sit and stagnate. So, when blessings come to me, they have to go out, and that’s what we firmly believe in our company, and God has blessed us so richly, and how can I not bless back?”

That gift came folded in a bag with Judith Annhocker’s name on it. Annhocker recently lost her home because of financial hardships. 

Now, the same house she once worried about losing, has now been secured for her and her sons. 

“It was a discussion earlier this morning about I gotta work this out because I don’t wanna lose the first home I ever had in my name. It was in my younger son’s name as well, but I got mine today. I’m so thankful,” said Annhoker.

Tears transitioned from sorrowful to joyful as Annhocker learned she could now live peacefully and smile knowing the scripture ‘Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.’ 

“I prayed, yes I worried, but I prayed because I knew Mr. Wilson was coming and to know the joys of my heart, peaceful Christmas. Thank you Jesus. I don’t know what else to say. I am in awe. thank you,” said Annhoker.
