Cox Expands Impressive Community Involvement During Red Kettle Campaign

Jan 24, 2019

Cox has a long history of community involvement, providing more than $1 million in support to agencies in the Omaha metropolitan area each year. The Salvation Army is grateful for their support of its annual Red Kettle Campaign. 

During this year's campaign, Cox committed to "adopting" a red kettle at the 132nd Street Walmart. Cheerful and energetic bell ringers from the Cox Business team were on hand every afternoon the week of Dec. 10–14.  

Cox Business Vice President Ashley Perkins championed the cause as the Corporate Challenge Chair for bell ringing, working to raise awareness with corporations and businesses about how the organizations and their employees can support The Salvation Army.

“The Salvation Army’s red kettles are an iconic sign of the holidays, a time when so many have so much but others do not. The Red Kettle Campaign allows us to support those in need during the holidays and beyond,” Perkins said. “The Cox Business team truly has a heart for service, loves to have fun and is no stranger to talking with new people, so spending our afternoons ringing bells at the red kettles was a perfect fit.”
