Cox “34 by 2034 Act to Impact” Tour Makes a Girl-Powered Stop in Dallas-Fort Worth
Community service event for Girls, Inc. included $35K in donations to ready local girls with the tools to support a STEAM career pathway

DALLAS-FORT WORTH, Texas (May 26, 2022) – Manheim Dallas-Fort Worth was the latest stop on the nationwide “34 by 2034 Act to Impact Tour,” a comprehensive and far-reaching social impact goal launched by Cox Enterprises. The goal is to empower 34 million people to live more prosperous lives by 2034 by taking meaningful action in communities where the company’s employees live and work. Manheim is part of Cox Automotive, an operating subsidiary of Cox Enterprises.

On Monday, May 23, more than 550 team members from Cox Automotive took part in a day of service that included assembling 150 hydroponic and solar kits and building 60 robots for the Dallas and Tarrant chapters of Girls Inc. The organization provides a safe haven and wholesome place for girls to go after school and in the summer, particularly those from low-income and under-resourced communities. Cox’s support for Girls, Inc. also included a $10,000 cash donation for each of the two chapters along with $15,000 in in-kind gifts which the employees assembled on-site.

“We are grateful to Cox and their employees for their commitment to STEAM education and their generous contributions to Girls Inc.,” said Beth Myers, CEO of Girls Inc. Metropolitan Dallas. “With the help of partners like Cox, we can inspire more girls in the Dallas area to overcome serious barriers, enhance their education, and help put them on a path toward strong careers and lasting success.” 

The eight-month roadshow features half-day events in 10 cities from California to Florida designed to create resilient and equitable communities and focusing on six key areas where Cox has the tools and knowledge to make an impact: technology access, access to lifelong education, employment skills, social equity, environmental sustainability and good health. At each stop, local Cox employees provide volunteer support with Cox Enterprises making a major donation to a charity in the community.

“Cox’s purpose is to build a better future for the next generation,” said Maury Wolfe, vice president of corporate responsibility and social impact at Cox Enterprises. “The resources provided to Girls, Inc. will positively impact these girls to grow into young women who are confident, courageous and prepared to make a positive difference in their lives, their families and in the world, and helping us get one step closer to our goal.”

“I’m so proud of our Manheim Texas team for hosting such an inspiring event,” added Grace Huang, president of Inventory Solutions at Cox Automotive. “At Cox, as we see STEAM advancing within the auto industry and at our auctions, we’ll be investing in more technology and talent to help us innovate and prepare for an evolving future.” 

The tour features a customized Airstream trailer that doubles as a digital recording studio to capture stories from Cox employees, as well as the benefiting organizations and the people they serve. Their stories will be included on the “Journey to 34 by 34” interactive website launching later this year and a multimedia display in the company’s corporate museum at its Atlanta headquarters.
