Sixteenth Annual Comcast Cares Day

On Saturday, April 22, elected officials, local Comcast NBCUniversal employees and their families, friends and community partners will “make change happen” as they volunteer to improve Mi Casa Resource Center and Lake International School in Denver as part of the 16th annual Comcast Cares Day.

Comcast Cares Day is more than just a day – it’s the culmination of Comcast NBCUniversal’s commitment to volunteerism that began when the company was founded more than 50 years ago. From using technology to create positive change, such as wiring community centers and libraries and teaching digital literacy skills, to mentoring youth, to beautifying parks, Comcast NBCUniversal employees volunteer on this day, and throughout the year, to make a lasting impact. This year, the Company expects more than 100,000 volunteers to participate in approximately 900 projects across the country and around the world. To date, volunteers have contributed nearly 5 million volunteer hours at 7,700 projects since Comcast Cares Day began in 2001.

Local Comcast employees and their families will collaborate with students and parents to help with a variety of clean-up and organizing projects, including deep-cleaning of school rooms, the auditorium, gymnasium areas, furniture, and fixtures at Mi Casa Resource Center and Lake International School in Denver. They will clean/provide light repair work in computer labs and work on trash pick-up on the school campus.

“As we celebrate our 16th annual Comcast Cares Day, we are so proud to engage and give back to our communities. Throughout Colorado, our volunteer teams will work in 16 different communities and complete 57 different service projects to help local schools, parks, Boys & Girls Clubs, and more.” said Rich Jennings, Comcast Senior Vice President Mountain West Region. “It’s truly amazing what’s possible when nearly 6,000 Comcast employees donate their time to make a difference in the lives of others. I’m inspired by the community’s response to Comcast Cares Day, and I’m so thankful for the participants who help to make this effort a success today and throughout the year.”
