CofO Athletes Spread Christmas Cheer Around the World

Recently all of the College of the Ozarks athletic teams and cheer team gathered together for a night of good will at their Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Wrap Party. 

As you can imagine, athletes find footwear to be an important part of their sport, but it is the box in which that footwear came that they focused on that evening.  The athletes spent the evening filling shoeboxes with items needed by children across the world (toothpaste and toothbrushes, socks, etc.), along with several fun toys, games, and drawing supplies.  In addition, the athletes made homemade, decorated cards in which they wrote personal letters to the children who would receive the gifts.

It was a great night of fun and laughter, all for a great cause.
