    The twin brothers grew up in North Philadelphia. Marcus Morris plays for the Boston Celtics, while his brother plays for the Washington Wizards.

    Their basketball schedules prevented the brothers from visiting the store in person, but the news was delivered by their mother, Thomasine Morris, WPVI reported. It was the final day to pay for layaway items, and customers were moved by the gesture.

    “God bless them. God bless them!” customer Roberta Williams, of Germantown, told WPVI. “It's wonderful what they are doing for the people.”

    “It's a blessing to be able to give people anything,” Thomasine Morris said. “Even though we play in Boston, even though we play in Washington, Philly is still our family.”
