To encourage goodwill in the community and to do its part as a good corporate citizen, thousands of Comcast employees and their families will be participating in Comcast Cares Day on Saturday, April 27. This is the 12th annual Comcast Cares Day, which brings together the efforts of local nonprofits and dedicated Comcast employees to benefit the community.
The event is held throughout the country, with over 70,000 employees committing to donate their time and effort just for the occasion.
Colorado in particular will be benefiting from the extra man hours, as explained by Rich Jennings, Comcast VP for the Mile High Region: “Coloradans have always demonstrated their ability to work hard and to take care of one another–Comcast Cares Day brings these two attributes together. By partnering with 27 outstanding Colorado nonprofits and working together to improve our community during our 12th Comcast Cares Day, we are honored to help make a big difference in the lives of others. I am thankful to all of our participants who are helping to make this a success.”
In addition to volunteer time and effort, the Comcast Foundation will award grants to local participating nonprofits on behalf of each volunteering employee and family member. The grants are a great benefit for local organizations, since it helps with funding beneficial and popular programs for members of the community. Since the inception of Comcast Cares Day, the cable MSO has pledged more than $12 million to local nonprofits and community organizations nationwide.
