In 2017, more than 105,000 volunteers participated in Comcast Cares Day across the nation. And we were just getting started.
This year, Comcast employees, friends, and partners will participate in several projects across Southern Arizona. There is still time for you to join us in making a difference. Volunteers will support our partner organizations on projects that include mentoring local students and beautifying spaces that serve our communities.
But we can’t do it alone!
If you are looking for an opportunity to get involved and give back to your community, consider participating in Comcast Cares Day.
The day will begin with volunteer check-in and FREE breakfast at 7:00 AM and conclude with FREE lunch by noon. Sign up to volunteer online at Comcast in the Community or view individual projects below and sign up through the direct links.
Volunteers will also receive a FREE Comcast Cares Day T-shirt as a Thank you for participating.
