Across the country, medical workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic are facing a critical shortage of medical gowns and other protective equipment.
Cox Enterprises was able to fill a portion of the gap by donating 6,000 disposable coveralls to Piedmont and Emory Healthcare on April 16. Six pallets of Cox Automotive coveralls typically used by workers at our auctions and by RideKleen were delivered to the hospitals.
The donation is just one of the ways that Cox is continuing to support frontline workers and the communities we serve during the COVID-19 crisis.
The James M. Cox Foundation joined with Emory University to start the Feed the Frontline initiative, which includes more than 700 individuals, foundations and corporate contributors. The goal is to serve more than 45,000 meals to healthcare workers and first responders battling COVID-19. The program is also expanding to deliver meals to Atlanta police and Atlanta fire and rescue first responders.
