Cox employees surprised Virginia nonprofits, including Boys Home of Virginia, with the news that they each won $5,000 grants on a Zoom call November 17.
Now more than ever, Cox employees are dedicated to giving back and supporting their communities and neighbors. It’s because of their generous contributions, Cox Charities awarded $5,000 grants to 18 nonprofits, for a total of $90,000, during a surprise video call. In addition to awarding grants to community nonprofits, a donation of $9,100 was made to the Cox Employee Relief Fund (CERF) on behalf of employees. CERF is a 501(c)3 dedicated to assisting employees and their families impacted by natural disasters, injury or illness, or loss of a family member.
As a family-owned business with employees living and working in local communities, Cox employees work to build a better future for the next generation. To date, Cox employees in Virginia have donated more than $1.2 million to Virginia nonprofits through Cox Charities.
Boys Home was surprised, delighted, and thankful for the generosity of Cox Charities. Grant money will go toward helping our students grow and thrive during their time at Boys Home!
