Major and Darlene Cox once again spread the true spirit of community with 13 years of â€śFeeding the Whole Community.â€ť People from all over West Point came to enjoy great food, music and unity Thursday. Over 2,000 people were fed traditional Thanksgiving fare. The Coxs wanted to thank everyone who donated food, cooked or served during the feast. Major Cox said it would have been impossible without help from within the West Point community. Darlene Cox said she was thrilled to see so many people, black and white, come, sit down and enjoy a meal together. She said she wishes people could forget their differences and get along every day.
â€śThis is a great event with the Coxs leading the way to show how more people should be giving back to the community,â€ť said Greg McMichael, long-time friend of the Coxs. â€śThey do this from the heart. West Point needs more people like Major and Darlene who only want to do for others. We need less people with their hands out and and more people ready to give a hand up.â€ť
