Cox Media Group is lending its support to the communities in the Northeast by donating a combined $75,000 to aid relief efforts in Southern Connecticut, Long Island and surrounding areas of New York City, that have begun the long journey to recover from Superstorm Sandy. CMG’s 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 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.
In Norwalk, Conn., CMG Connecticut ̶ WEZN, WPLR and WFOX ̶ will partner with Family & Children’s 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.
Long Island’s WBAB and WBLI will lend support to Island Harvest, Long Island’s 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.
Earlier this week, CMG’s parent, 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.
