Foxfire Center For Student Success

A local school is helping bring Christmas to families in need.

Misty Miller, a mother of seven, says she is extremely thankful to have Foxfire Center for Student Success help her out this holiday season.  Two of Misty’s children attend Foxfire School where they submitted requests to help their family with food and gifts for Christmas.

"I didn’t have money this year to buy Christmas because I have a boy that has a lot of medical problems," said Miller. 

Outreach Coordinator Tammy Porter says they were able to service all sixteen families this year whom all sent requests.  Foxfire was able to raise money from a benefit for the students and their families who are in need. 

"Without our support and help, these students probably wouldn’t have a Christmas at all. The family that we just delivered to here has children with medical difficulties and the mom doesn’t have much support so other things came before Christmas," said Porter. 

Porter says Misty’s 15-year-old and 17-year-old were above the age of The Salvation Army’s criteria that are servicing children in the area, so it was important for them to help their students.
