Comcast Cares Day is more than just a day – it is an illustration of the spirit of volunteerism our employees bring to life every day.
From using technology to create positive change, such as teaching digital literacy skills, to mentoring youth, to stocking food banks, to beautifying parks, Comcast NBCUniversal employees volunteer during this celebration and throughout the year to make a lasting impact. To date, more than 1 million Comcast Cares Day volunteers have contributed over six million service hours to improve local communities at more than 10,000 projects.
As we celebrate our 18th annual Comcast Cares Day, we are delighted to partner with numerous communities and partners throughout our state to give back to our local communities across Colorado,” said Rich Jennings, Senior Vice President of the Comcast Mountain West Region. “It is incredible to see how we can drive meaningful change by bringing together our employees, their friends and families, and our community partners, both on this day and throughout the year. We are thankful for the participants and volunteers who continue to work to make a positive difference.”
In Colorado this year, more than 5,000 volunteers will complete nearly 100 different projects in 18 communities across Colorado. Employees, their friends and family, alongside our community partners will complete projects such as, clean-up projects in parks and schools around the state, maintenance projects for local Boys & Girls Clubs from Colorado Springs to Steamboat, and work to prepare Easterseals Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Village camp for summer programs available to more than 1,200 children and adults with disabilities in our state.
The Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation will provide grants to local partner organizations on behalf of volunteers who contribute their time on Comcast Cares Day. The grants will help Comcast’s partners continue their mission of serving the community throughout the year. To date, the Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation has awarded nearly $25 million in grants to local nonprofit organizations that have served as partners on Comcast Cares Day.
