Comcast is supporting emergency relief funds and local organizations across Colorado by committing over $500,000 in relief funding to partners, including:
$100,000 to the Colorado COVID Relief Fund hosted by the State of Colorado and Mile High United Way. The fund provides resources to organizations working with communities who have been disproportionately impacted by the global health crisis. It will support work in three categories: prevention, impact, and recovery efforts. This includes medical and cleaning supplies, food services, early childhood education, small business support, behavioral health services, and more. Comcast’s contribution goes towards underwriting the processing fees so that 100% of all additional contributions from generous Coloradans will be directed toward the relief fund.
We are grateful for the support that we have received from private sector partners like Comcast. Thanks to their generosity we will be able to support Coloradans across our state that are being affected by this deadly virus”
– Governor Jared Polis
Comcast will provide over $400,000 to more than 50 long-term community partners who need support due to lost revenue, or those who have shifted their programming to serve people and small businesses impacted by the crisis, including Girls Inc. Of Metro Denver, Aurora Public Schools, Care & Share Food Bank of Southern Colorado, United Way of Larimer County, Pueblo City Schools and many others.
Thank you for your kind gift to the Food Bank for Larimer County…We so appreciate your generosity and kindness during this uncertain time as we work to feed our food insecure neighbors.”
– Nancy Tafoya, Community Engagement, Food Bank for Larimer County
