Winter boots miracle

When bagging the gifts for one family with three boys, Rita Swiener, our founder, decided to include an expensive pair of boots that had been sitting around the warehouse for over a month. Although Rita had no way of knowing the oldest boy’s shoe size, she decided to give him the boots as an extra gift. Our Santa called Rita to tell her the oldest boy had started jumping up and down, excitedly screaming, “My boots! My boots!” when he opened the box. His mom had explained that he had only asked for boots for Christmas, and the boots he received fit perfectly. She hadn’t allowed him to go outside to play because she was afraid he’d ruin his only pair of shoes, but now with his new pair of boots he could.
