I often say that Cox is one of the best companies to work for in America. One of many large examples is evidenced by the below note from Jim Kennedy, Cox’s Executive Chairman and Cox family member. In addition to genuinely caring and supporting fellow Cox associates in times of need, the family and organization commits significant resources to the environment, social causes and a multitude of other worthy initiatives, institutions and organizations. We should all be proud to support and do business with an organization that commits itself to making the world a better place.
Dear Cox Colleagues,
Ten years ago, in the wake of the overwhelming devastation brought by Hurricane Katrina, we established the Cox Employee Relief Fund (CERF) to help employees rebuild their lives. Since then, the fund has provided $4 million in employee grants, assisting more than 1,700 employees facing critical financial hardship.
But it’s so much more than these impressive numbers. It’s about truly being able to help our fellow employees and their families when they need us most.
Through the years, CERF has grown to become a 501(c)(3) charitable organization supported by employee donations. Its mission is to assist employees and their immediate families impacted by life’s setbacks, including natural disasters, injury or illness, or loss of a family member. CERF has aided employees with funeral costs, unexpected medical bills and rebuilding their lives after natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy.
Thank you for your continued support. I am extremely proud that together we can support our colleagues and make a meaningful difference in each other’s lives.
