Cox Communications dedicated a large part of its work force to the City of Warwick today, for Random Acts of Kindness Day as more than 100 Cox employees set out, with Mayor Scott Avedisian, to remind the community of the power of a good deed.
The day kicked off with a 10 a.m. ceremony at the Cox headquarters in West Warwick, with Warwick Mayor Avedisian.
From there, employees were deployed throughout the city to perform random acts of kindness that included presenting a complimentary Cox bundle of services to the family of a “bundle of joy” born at Kent Hospital; delivering pizzas to Warwick police and firefighters; helping the Boys & Girls Clubs of Warwick write letters to the troops in Iraq; randomly purchasing lunches for diners at area restaurants; and passing out water and sunscreen at city parks and beaches.
“Cox Communications has always had a remarkable relationship with the City of Warwick,” said Paul Cronin, Vice President and Region Manager, Cox Communications New England. “Today we aim to show this community how much we appreciate the businesses and the people. Random Acts of Kindness Day is an extension of Cox’s ongoing commitment to make the communities where our employees live and work a better place.”
Avedisian visited the new House of Hope facility for the first time, with Cox Communications, to deliver goodies and gifts to the residents.
This afternoon, Cox employees were to make ice-cream sundaes for residents at Brentwood Nursing Home, 4000 Post Road, at 2 p.m.; pump gas and give away gas cards at the Mobil station at 91 Veterans Memorial Parkway, also at 2; and buy lunch for city residents at Iggy’s, 889 Oakland Beach Ave., at 3 p.m.
A team of Cox employees are at work in the computer lab at the Warwick Boys & Girls Club, 340 Oakland Beach Ave. for the afternoon.
