Appointed by chairperson Dobie, Maynard is the treasurer of his class' Christmas dance fund. Maynard believes the seemingly poor Spanish-speaking Mexican shoe shine boy he befriends needs the money more - all $55.78 - especially since it's Christmas. Maynard confesses to the dance committee that he no longer has the money, but won't tell what happened to it if only to protect his new friend. The committee members are angry but don't believe Maynard stole the money. Regardless, Maynard vows to pay it all back. The only way he can is to get a job. Maynard getting a job is easier said than done. But Maynard, who is generous to a fault in the jobs he does end up getting, may end up showing everyone around him the true meaning of the holidays.
