Comcast forms a yearlong partnership with Visit.org to amplify community impact in service areas
Comcast Central Division partnered with Visit.org, a provider of corporate social impact experiences, to facilitate and host a volunteering event with the nonprofit, the Happy Hope Foundation.
Through Team Up, Comcast’s employee volunteer program, Comcast employees volunteered to make activity kits to distribute to hospitalized children.
“Comcast is proud to partner with Visit.org and the Happy Hope Foundation and provide much-needed resources to children and families in the communities we serve,” says Comcast Central Division President Christine Whitaker. “Our team members are thrilled to build on our legacy of volunteerism with a series of local service projects throughout the year and have additional opportunities to make meaningful connections.”
During the volunteering event, team members packed 60 Happy Hope Bags, which were then delivered to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and the East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
The Happy Hope Foundation is dedicated to boosting hope and happiness for hospitalized children by providing kits containing fun activities such as puzzles, coloring books, art supplies, and joyful messages. To date, Happy Hope Foundation has delivered bags to over 650,000+ children.
“The Happy Hope Foundation is so grateful to our partners at Comcast and Visit.org for their support of our efforts to serve hospitalized children,” says Emi Burke, Founder and CEO of the Happy Hope Foundation. “The Hope kits packed by Comcast volunteers provided a much-needed boost of hope to pediatric patients at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.”
The volunteer event was part of a recently formed partnership between the Comcast Central Division and Visit.org that will connect Comcast team members throughout the year to social impact experiences that empower and make a difference in local communities within the Comcast Central Division footprint that spans 12 states.
