Comcast Cares Day is more than just a day – it is an illustration of the spirit of volunteerism our employees bring to life every day. From using technology to create positive change, such as teaching digital literacy skills, to mentoring youth, to stocking food banks, to beautifying parks, Comcast NBCUniversal employees volunteer during this celebration and throughout the year to make a lasting impact. To date, more than 1 million Comcast Cares Day volunteers have contributed over 6 million service hours to improve local communities at more than 10,000 projects.
“As we celebrate our 18th annual Comcast Cares Day, we are delighted to partner with fantastic local organizations including Marana Middle School, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson and the Food Bank of Arizona to give back to our southern Arizona community,” said Chris Dunkeson, Comcast Area Vice President in New Mexico and Arizona. “It is incredible to see how we can drive meaningful change by bringing together our employees, their friends and families, and our community partners, both on this day and throughout the year. We are thankful for the participants and volunteers who continue to work to make a positive difference.”
In Arizona, Comcast volunteers will lend a hand at Marana Middle School and Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson on April 27, the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona on April 30, and Harelson Elementary/Cross Middle School on May 4.
The Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation will provide grants to local partner organizations on behalf of volunteers who contribute their time on Comcast Cares Day. The grants will help Comcast’s partners continue their mission of serving the community throughout the year. To date, the Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation has awarded nearly $25 million in grants to local nonprofit organizations that have served as partners on Comcast Cares Day.
