The James M. Cox Foundation on Wednesday announced a $50,000 gift to the Latin American Association (LAA) to support the organization's Latino Family Self-Sufficiency Project. That project helps families with emergency needs including rent assistance, food and clothing. Cox Enterprises owns The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and other media properties.
The LAA focuses on youth academic achievement, education and services to families with urgent needs.
"The gift from the James M. Cox Foundation will help us provide vital services to Atlanta's Hispanic community," said Jeffrey Tapia, the LAA's executive director.
