Fox hands out $250,000 in food, toy vouchers to thousands
Thousands of Bahamian families will have a hot meal and toys for Christmas, thanks to the generosity of philanthropic business leader Adrian Fox.
The Fox Foundation handed out $250,000 in food and toy vouchers on Tuesday morning, drawing thousands of people who pulled up in vehicles that wrapped around Sports Center Grounds and extended onto University Drive.
Donning green shirts and Santa hats, dozens of volunteers put Christmas packages in each vehicle during the four-hour drive-thru event.
Apostle Raymond Wells, who sits on the Fox Foundation’s board of directors, applauded Fox for sparing no expense to ensure this season is bright for families that have fallen on hard times.
“It’s so good to be here with Dr. Adrian Fox and the Fox Foundation,” he said.
“I’ve watched this man give bountifully to those who are in need, and not just this initiative. I’ve seen him give scholarships, I’ve seen him help with mortgages and guess what, he is also partnering with Living Waters Kingdom Ministry in our youth and community center. Thank God for you, Dr. Fox,” he added.
Fox, who called Wells his mentor and spiritual advisor, said it was a pleasure to spearhead such a worthy cause.
“God came to me in a dream and said to help him with his community center, help him get that built and I said that’s what I’m going to do,” Fox said.
The Island Luck cofounder also held a giveaway in the Kemp Road community.
“Thank you, Mr. Fox,” recipients yelled as he walked through the crowd with Minister of National Security and Freetown Member of Parliament Wayne Munroe.
“This event was put on by the Fox Foundation and we put it on all the time to make sure we give back to people in our community,” Fox told hundreds of Kemp Road residents.
“We love y’all, y’all are our family,” he added.
Munroe thanked the Fox Foundation for its philanthropic efforts, which come amid the lingering economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
