Lee C. Lauderdale, Comcast Customer Service Manager
Comcast Cares Day is Comcast’s annual day of giving back to our local communities. On April 21, thousands of volunteers will come together to make change happen on Comcast Cares Day. Our employees, working in conjunction with their families, friends and community partners, will beautify schools, donate blood, clean up parks and raise food for the needy.
As a Comcast customer service manager, I have the opportunity to assist our customers each day, but Comcast Cares Day offers a unique opportunity for me to help others in my community outside of my day job.
This year, I am celebrating my tenth Comcast Cares Day in Memphis. Over the years, I have participated in projects that have benefitted Boys and Girls Club, Crump Elementary, American Veterans Home, Graham Elementary, Lemoyne Owens and the Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association.
Each one of these projects was special to me because they all impacted lives of people throughout our community, some that I know and some that I did not know. The work also allowed me to invite family, friends and church members to work alongside of me. This type of work “does the heart good” and gives back to those volunteering as much as it does to those benefitting from the projects.
Over the years, I have watched Comcast Cares Day fulfill its incredible mission. It has become part of my life and I am honored to participate and help coordinate projects each year. I have seen improvements for many children and adults during the last 10 years – and that feels great. I am honored to be part of Comcast – a company that really makes a difference in the community.
