This is the best I can remember.  A family puts all their change in a jar all year long.  When it's time to do the Christmas shopping, the family gets together, splits the money between them, and head out to shop.  There is a young girl/woman sitting on a curb outside the mall.  One of the children in the family speaks to the girl and the girl explains that she has no food or money.  The family member then hands over the full jar of money much to the surprise and dismay of the other family members.

Any idea at all, anyone?  Thanks in advance.

This is close to what you are looking for, but a bit different:

Yep, the Christmas Jar.  It is an amazing story.
