Clifton, NJ – It’s a day of jubilance at Fox Institute for the students, staff, faculty, local community and their families as they all had a chance to tell Santa what they wanted this year for Christmas and get their photograph taken. Fox Institute opened its campus to all members of the local community between the hours of 10a.m. through 7p.m. to allow them to get their complimentary picture with Santa Claus. The photographs will be framed and ready for pickup on January 13, 2011.
Many families in these hard economic times can’t afford to take their children to see Santa, let alone have their pictures taken with him. So Fox Institute decided to give back to their local community and all the children in it and have Santa come to campus. Fox Institute’s own Willie Martinez, Admissions Representative, will be the photographer and Mr. William Brown, Regional Director of Admissions will be Santa Claus. “We’re hoping the whole neighborhood shows up” stated, Hilda Diaz, Campus President of Fox Institute, NJ. “All children should know the joy of the holidays and if we can help to make the slightest difference for one family this season then we have accomplished our goal. As always, I want to thank my staff and faculty for all they do and for making these events possible for our community. I would also like to extend a special thank you to Theresa Barreto, Senior Admissions Representative for helping to make this event possible.”
Randy Proto, CEO of American Institute, Fox Institute's parent company, added, “Our Fox Institute, NJ campus is always very active in the community but their efforts to make the holidays better for those less fortunate are very impressive. From their toy drive for children who have to spend the holidays in the hospital to this initiative to allow children to get their picture taken with Santa, they truly have shown what the holiday spirit really is. We should all take a moment to pause, reflect and think about how we can make a difference this holiday season. And to the children who will have their pictures taken, Merry Christmas!”
