“Each year on Comcast Cares Day, we enjoy teaming up with hundreds of incredible organizations across the Southeast to make a difference in our communities,” said Doug Guthrie, Comcast’s Regional SVP. “We are thankful to the volunteers who always make this day of giving a success, and look forward to building new partnerships this year.”
