Kansas City’s Secret Santa has hit the streets again delivering good cheer in the form of $100 bills.

The Kansas City Star reports that he made stops Tuesday at a tiny house village for homeless veterans, along with discount and second-hand stores. Several elves joined him, including Jackson County Sheriff Darryl Forté and County Executive and Royals Hall of Famer Frank White.

The Secret Santa tradition began years ago with a man named Larry Stewart. Stewart was touched by a stranger’s kindness at his lowest point. He later became wealthy and decided to share his good fortune with strangers.

When Stewart was dying of cancer, he enlisted the current Santa, who insists on anonymity. He has carried on the tradition for 12 years and says it “never gets old.”
