During the month of April, more than 500 Comcast employees, friends, family and community partners volunteered at various projects across greater Chattanooga as a part of the 15th annual Comcast Cares Day.
Comcast Cares Day, which takes place each April during National Volunteer Month, is Comcast NBCUniversal’s companywide celebration of their year-round commitment to service and the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort in the country.
On Sunday, April 24, at Comcast’s signature project in Chattanooga, Comcast volunteers provided free tours for local youth through the Chattanooga Aquarium utilizing the organization’s app to provide an interactive learning environment. At the end of the tours, Comcast volunteers helped connect dozens of families to Comcast’s Internet Essentials, the nation’s largest high-speed Internet adoption program aimed at bridging the digital divide and getting high-speed Internet access into the homes of more families.
