Giving Back Company
Cox employees spent an afternoon helping the Second Harvest Food Bank repack pallets of food for distribution across the state. The group worked together like a well-oiled machine while keeping the mood light and fun, and enjoying the comradery.

Cox believes life gets better when there are more moments of real, human connection. Cox and its employees live and work toward a company-wide mission: connecting their customers to the people and things they care about the most. Their knowledgeable and down-to-earth employees are there to support their customers and are genuinely eager to help; be it through technology or philanthropy—or both.
WHY THEY GIVE
Nonprofit organizations help foster growth and strength in their communities, and Cox has a long history of community involvement. With its philanthropy efforts focused on youth and education, diversity, and environmental issues, Cox understands the importance of serving the communities in which they live and work. They encourage their employees to take part in volunteer work, whether packing food boxes or cleaning up beaches. Cox employees have held clothing and diaper drives for Covenant House, Odyssey House and the Junior League; they have donated 30 coats for kids in need at the High-Level Speech and Hearing Center; and they have refreshed the technology center at the Boys & Girls NFL YET Club to allow young people to bridge the digital divide.
Cox gives back to the community through donations of both time and money. Most recently, the Cox Charities Program offered five grants to local New Orleans nonprofits to support programs and projects intended to improve our community. Grant recipients were Angels’ Place, Grace at the Green Light, Luke’s House, Odyssey House Louisiana Inc. and Murphy Education & Sports Foundation.
Grant applications were read and processed by local employees to determine how the dollars would best impact positive change in the communities they serve. The grants were funded via the generosity of Cox employees, who gave from their own paychecks to support these community organizations.
Cox also provides support to local schools through Innovation in Education grants, five of which were presented to local schools for the 2019-2020 school year to support programs such as a sensory area, a reading corner and scholarships promoting STEM careers.
Cox’s mission is to connect our customers to the people and things they care about most.
