In the fall of 2014, when we were giving out boots, gloves, socks, etc. from the Schmuckal Foundation, I asked a neighbor if he would like a pair of boots. “Not for me,” he said, “but could I get a pair for my wife and daughter?” I asked about what sizes and went off to find what I could. I returned with two pairs in the correct sizes and he was overjoyed. “They will be so happy, you have no idea. This will really make their day, I appreciate this so much.”
