Cox Industries is the latest company to lend a helping hand to the devastated New Jersey boardwalk. The wood manufacturer and distributor has donated lumber to help replace the two mile stretch of swing back benches, where visitors could take in sights of the ocean or adjacent shops and restaurants.

North American Wholesale Lumber Association (NAWLA) president Gary Vitale originally reached out to Cox's VP of Marketing, Keith Harris, to coordinate the effort. The donated lumber, totaling 12,000 board feet of pressure-treated wood, will replace a total of 275 benches.
