A man who couldn’t afford to fix his teeth has been given a new smile—thanks to a Secret Santa who’s has been doing great things for the people of Idaho Falls.
With little assistance from the East Idaho News elves, every day in the lead-up to Christmas, a secretive local man has been giving over $500,000 in gifts to those might need a bit of a boost this year.
Last week, it was Diana Boldman story, a McDonald’s worker and grandmother who received an unforgettable festive surprise in the form of a much-needed new vehicle.
Now, it is Alyn’s story. He began temping at an Idaho Falls company two years ago. He was finding it difficult to make ends meet, and—though he never admitted his situation to anyone—he was sleeping in his truck to get by. In spite of the difficulties he was facing, Alyn was the best temp work the business had ever had.
Before he got a permanent full-time contract, Alyn made a hard decision to pull out his teeth. He didn’t have the necessary funds to repair them or get them cleaned when there was a problem, and as a result a tooth infection became severe.
When Secret Santa heard that Alyn needs new dentures, he knew the right present to give.
