The Cemex Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Cemex USA, awarded grants to more than 15 nonprofit organizations across Florida, with the funding expected to assist in providing food, housing, safety, education and other vital support to communities during the pandemic.

“We are honored to be a part of the Florida community for decades and have lived through many crises, so we moved quickly to help those in need,” says Jaime Muguiro, Cemex USA president. “It was important to contribute to recovery efforts directly and support the great work of nonprofit organizations across Florida and the country.”

According to Cemex, company representatives delivered grant checks on behalf of the Cemex Foundation to help fund local efforts conducted by nonprofit organizations in several communities, including Miami, West Palm Beach, Tampa, Fort Myers and Orlando.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many of our neighbors and their families across Florida to face unforeseen hardships, and they need additional help,” says Jeff Bobolts, Cemex USA regional president overseeing Florida. “At Cemex, we are proud to be able to present donations from the Cemex Foundation to help our communities through the support of hardworking nonprofit organizations that are providing critical assistance in what remains a challenging time.”

Among more than 15 contributions to individual nonprofits, the Cemex Foundation awarded grants to Feeding South Florida, LASER (Lake and Sumter Emergency Recovery), Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida, Community Coordinated Care for Children and Matthew’s Hope.
