As City Year’s largest team sponsor, CSX demonstrates a shared commitment to service 
and the positive role it plays in transforming neighborhoods and communities. CSX 
partners with City Year’s Care Force® team to engage employees, customers and 
community members in service days throughout the year. To support Care Force® 
service days across the country, CSX donated two tractortrailers to transport tools and 
materials to service events across the country. CSX is also a co-sponsor of City Year’s 
National Leadership Summit, and as City Year’s Lead Safety Partner, CSX provides first 
aid and CPR training for all corps and staff members.

"CSX has been supporting City Year since 1994 and is proud to sponsor 13 teams of City Year AmeriCorps members who are making a difference in the lives of thousands of students across this country every day. We are inspired by the dedication and commitment of these AmeriCorps members who work as tutors, mentors and role models to keep students in school and on track to graduate."

- Michael Ward, President and CEO of CSX
