James M. Cox Foundation Donates $25,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank

NEW ORLEANS – From Cox Communications:

Cox Communications and Cox Automotive are working together to help feed families in the New Orleans area through Second Harvest Food Bank with a $25,000 donation from The James M. Cox Foundation. The grant will support local families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The James M. Cox Foundation is the charitable arm of Cox Enterprises and the parent company of Cox Communications and Cox Automotive. In response to the growing strain on feeding the community, the foundation announced a $25,000 donation to support people in need where Cox lives and works.   

“We are proud to support the Second Harvest Food Bank,” said Kevin Monroe, Cox Communications vice president for the New Orleans Market. “It provides food and support to more than 700 community partners and programs across 23 parishes. The organization provides more than 32 million meals per year children and families who face hunger in our region. As school and workplace closures make access to nutritious food even more challenging, these children and working families need our help now, more than ever.”
