Nearly 6,000 Comcast employees, families and friends, and members of the community volunteered their time during Comcast Cares Day cleaning parks and trails, adding a fresh coat of paint to school walls and classrooms, planting community gardens, building baby blankets, donating blood and much more as part of our annual day of service.
We partnered with around 100 community organizations across Colorado on service projects in nearly 20 communities. These projects are part of many events around the world celebrating Comcast NBCUniversal’s commitment to giving back each and every day of the year.
Our Colorado volunteers joined more than 100,000 of our Comcast NBCUniversal employees, their families and friends, and local partners who made a positive impact this year in 23 countries around the world, doing everything from assembling care packages for U.S. service members to tree planting in areas struck by natural disasters to teaching digital literacy.
Comcast Cares Day is special for all of us—here’s a snapshot of what our Colorado projects looked like and what our community partners had to say about their experience:
