CoxHealth employees donate to school, young students

CoxHealth employees come through once again in our latest community donation drive, this one to support young students at York Elementary School in Springfield.

Employees were asked to provide school supplies for children at the school who started classes without the basic necessities like crayons, pencils and backpacks, as well as toys and other gift items for the school’s Cents of Pride student reward store.

The drive ended August 20 and the items were delivered in a CoxHealth van and pickup truck to York Elementary Thursday, August 21 by CoxHealth employees involved in this year’s Day of Caring event at the school.

CoxHealth employee volunteers sorted through boxes and bags of donated items. School supplies were stuffed into donated backpacks.

Our thanks to everyone who donated to this important drive that supports York students with schools supplies and recognition for good behavior in school!

Springfield Public Schools responded through a Facebook post, "Thank you so much for your generosity and resources. We appreciate our community partners so much!"
