Those Interested in Volunteering are Encouraged to Attend
Chattanooga, Tenn. – April 5, 2018 – This month, more than 500 local Comcast NBCUniversal employees and their families, friends and community partners will “make change happen” as they volunteer at multiple projects across the Chattanooga area as part of the 17th annual Comcast Cares Day, the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer event.
During the month of April, the “Comcast Cares Day” volunteer projects in Greater Chattanooga will support local organizations including the Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House, Athens Fishing Derby, Bethel Bible Village and Camp Rain for Kids.
Additional volunteers are needed and encouraged to attend a project. For more information on how to get involved and to register, visit http://comca.st/2ElED4x.
“We are thrilled to have been selected for this year’s Comcast Cares Day project,” said Jane Kaylor, Executive Director, Ronald McDonald House. “Through this beautification project, Comcast volunteers will make a big impact to our site and will help us improve the home environment for our families.”
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.
“Our Comcast Cares Day volunteers continue to spread positivity, build bonds, strengthen the community and make a lasting impact on others,” said Doug Guthrie, Regional Senior Vice President, Comcast. “At Comcast, giving back is in our DNA and we are proud to partner with such impactful organizations and incredible people to make a difference in our community.”
The Comcast Foundation will also provide grants to local community partner organizations across the country on behalf of everyone who volunteers on Comcast Cares Day. The grants will help Comcast’s community partners continue their mission of serving the community throughout the year. To date, the Comcast Foundation has awarded more than $22 million in grants to local non-profit organizations who have served as partners on Comcast Cares Day.
Comcast has been committed to serving local communities since our founding more than 50 years ago. For more information on Comcast NBCUniversal volunteer and community investment initiatives, visit http://comca.st/2En5i0y.
