A Barberton woman knows that her son understands the true spirit of Christmas -- too bad it happened the way that it did.
Angelique Miller, a social worker, bought food and gathered donated gift cards and other items at the last minute for a woman and three children who were planning to go without holiday gifts, as reported on Channel 3 News. They were also struggling to find money for food.
Miller packed her car the night before she was planning to make the special delivery only to find that someone broke into the vehicle parked in her driveway and stole everything.
Miller's son, Jimmy, 12, told his mom she could return some of his gifts so the money could be spent on the other family.
"It didn't take much thought," said Jimmy. "They need it more than I do."
The other family doesn't want Jimmy to do that.
Miller is obviously unhappy with the thieves.
"I just hope they didn't get joy," said Miller. "I hope every time they put those clothes on or put those clothes on their kids, they live with the guilt of 'we stole from somebody.'"

Miller is trying to get the gift cards canceled and replaced.
