At Cox, we are committed to keeping our customers and our communities connected during the Coronavirus pandemic.
At this time, we have postponed the traditional Cox Charities Community Investment program for 2020 so we can understand how to best respond to our neighbors in need.
If your organization is offering community-wide support services to those impacted directly or indirectly by the Coronavirus and you could use support, please contact Bayli Scruggs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
