Cox donates $100,000 to hurricane relief


The James M. Cox Foundation will make a $100,000 grant to the American Red Cross for hurricane relief in the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s devastating impact on Texas.

Jim Kennedy, chairman of Cox Enterprises, announced the donation Tuesday in a message to employees in which he also urged employees to support hurricane victims however they can.

Cox Enterprises is the parent company of WHIO-TV and radio, the Dayton Daily News, Springfield News-Sun and the JournalNews of Butler County.

The company’s founder, James M. Cox, was instrumental in southwest Ohio’s recovery from a devastating 1913 flood in Dayton, Hamilton and other communities. 

“Beginning with my grandfather and through the generations, Cox has always supported the people and places where we do business,” Kennedy wrote.
