Fox and Costello give
to Christmas Child

 

School of Communications faculty members Mark Fox and Vic Costello led three other adults and 25 young people to work at Operation Christmas Child in Boone, N.C., on a weekend just before the holidays.

The mostly volunteer-powered Operation Christmas Child delivers nearly 7 million gift boxes to children around the world each Christmas. It is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse, founded by Franklin Graham. The grassroots effort encourages people from everywhere to find and fill an empty shoebox with various useful, fun gifts for children of a specific age group. The boxes are collected together at a distribution facility and are sent to children who would otherwise receive no gift at Christmas.

Costello and Fox collected a number of boxes packed by faculty and staff members at Elon University and brought them to Boone. Their group helped process 3,500 boxes that were to be sent to Botswana.
