CSX is a Team Sponsor in every city where their tracks run and City Year has a program. This cements CSX as City Year’s single largest corporate Team Sponsor partner nationally. In total CSX sponsors 13 teams across the 26 cities we serve. The City Year-CSX partnership, however, runs much deeper. Each year, thousands of CSX employees volunteer on projects managed by City Year’s CareForce Team and local City Year sites. For example, last month on MLK Day CSX employees volunteered their time to beautify Edward H. White High School and complete murals for Northwestern Middle School.
This partnership would not be possible without the incredible support of CSX’s President & CEO. Michael Ward's personal investment with City Year is profound including serving on City Year’s National Board of Trustees and our local City Year Jacksonville Advisory Board. Michael also enjoys engaging directly with the City Year AmeriCorps members on the CSX team serving Northwestern Middle School. Just this week Michael and Kim Ward treated their team to a night of team building and bowling to express their appreciation for the work they do.
Our gratitude to the generosity, collaboration, and partnership of CSX and Michael and Kim Ward.
