To the Editor,

Our family again had the privilege of being a part of Operation First Day of School, the communitywide event sponsored by Waxahachie ISD which provides assistance to students in need. Our son, Justin, served for the second year in a row as honorary co-chair. Under the leadership of WISD Public Relations Director Nicole Mancell, Operation First Day of School was held on Tuesday, Aug. 9 and was a huge success.

Brian Waters made a tremendous contribution again this year, which was used to purchase an enormous amount of school supplies. Area businesses, churches, organizations and individuals donated clothing, school supplies, backpacks, books, haircuts and dental screenings. Behind the scenes, preparations for an event like this are astounding and we want to thank all of the ones who worked so hard to make this happen. There is no way to explain all that had to be done and to individually thank all those who did it. To all you hard-working folks, to everyone who made a donation and especially Brian Waters, the Fox family says thank you and may God bless you and keep you. You made a difference in the lives of hundreds of kids. That is what it is all about.

Gary, Teri, Jennifer and Justin Fox,

Waxahachie
