Comcast, Community Partners Host Volunteer Day at Overton Park Playground

Dozens of Volunteers ‘Spread Mulch Love’ and Internet Connectivity on October 7

On Saturday, October 7, in honor of Nature Zen Month, Comcast, its community partners, and dozens of local volunteers donated their time to help spruce up the Overton Park Rainbow Lake Playground in Memphis, Tennessee.

The event included a “Spread Mulch Love” project where volunteers spread mulch around several playground sections to refresh the areas and made them safer for children to play.

“Thank you so much to Comcast and all the volunteers who helped us refresh the playground,” said Andrew Weda, Operations Manager at Overton Park Conservancy. “We were able to spread the equivalent of one 18-wheeler load of safety service material around eight playground sections, so we truly appreciate the support on this project.”

“Comcast is committed to bettering the communities we are a part of,” said Evangeline Parker-Guest, Sr. Manager of Comcast External Affairs. “This project gave our team members an opportunity to support one of the parks in the heart of Memphis, and it was a great day ‘spreading mulch love’ around the park.”

Comcast also provided information and sign-up opportunities for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and the company’s own broadband adoption program, Internet Essentials (IE), which is eligible for ACP credits.

ACP is a federal program that provides eligible customers up to a $30 per month credit toward their Internet and mobile services for the duration of the program. Comcast has made ACP available for all speed tiers of Xfinity Internet service including Internet Essentials. Additionally, Xfinity Internet customers participating in ACP now can add mobile service through Xfinity Mobile.
