Cox Donates $75K To Sandy Relief Efforts


Cox Media Group is making a corporate donation of $75,000 to aid relief efforts in Southern Connecticut, Long Island, and surrounding areas of New York City. CMGs contribution will be shared with charities identified as having some of the greatest need by Cox Reps New York, CMG Connecticut, and CMG Long Island radio stations. Cox has stations in Connecticut and on Long Island that were in the path of the storm.  

CMG President Doug Franklin said, As the Northeast continues healing and rebuilding after Superstorm Sandy, Cox Media Group and our local businesses want to support those organizations that are making a difference in the lives of those who have suffered great losses. Our employees in these communities exude great passion for the work they do for their communities every day. Many continued working through the storm to inform their audiences, and others now are giving of their time to help their communities rebound from this disaster.

Earlier this week, CMGs parent company Cox Enterprises, in partnership with The James M. Cox Foundation, announced a combined cash donation of $100,000 to the American Red Cross to assist the relief and recovery efforts of the communities affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Cox Reps New York is partnering with Habitat for Humanity to support its relief efforts in Connecticut, Long Island, New Jersey/New Jersey Shore, The Rockaways, and Staten Island. Cox Reps is honored to provide support to Habitat for Humanity, which is working on the frontlines of this disaster where many of our Cox Reps employees and our buying communities families and friends reside, said Cox Reps President Jim Monahan. 

In Norwalk, Conn., CMG Connecticut  ̶  WEZN, WPLR, and WFOX  ̶  will partner with Family & Childrens Agency, which has served Fairfield County and beyond for more than 70 years. Each year, the agency serves over 10,000 children and families, youth, adults, and seniors. We want to help Family & Childrens Agency rebuild fully and quickly after Sandy, said CMG Connecticut General Manager Kristin Okesson. Our donation will support a relief fund that will help them recoup the losses due to the storm and will directly benefit the programs that have been disrupted and which are vital to many people in Fairfield County. 

Long Islands WBAB and WBLI will lend support to Island Harvest, Long Islands largest hunger relief organization. For over two decades, Island Harvest has provided feeding services to those in need through their network of over 570 food pantries, soup kitchens, and other non-profit organizations. On behalf of Cox Media Group and our Long Island staff, it is truly an honor to provide Island Harvest with this financial support during one of the most critical times in Long Island history, said CMG Long Island General Manager John Shea. This donation reflects our belief in the mission of Island Harvest and their dedication to the Long Island community.
