Nearly 6,000 Comcast Colorado Employees, Friends and Family Volunteer at 57 Schools and Community Organizations Across the State on Comcast Cares Day

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On Saturday, April 22, nearly 6,000 Comcast
employees and their families, friends and community
partners volunteered at 57 schools and community organizations around
Colorado as part of the 16th annual Comcast
Cares Day

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. This year, more than
100,000 volunteers participated in approximately 900 projects across the
country and around the world. To date, volunteers have contributed
nearly 5 million volunteer hours at 7,700 projects since Comcast Cares
Day began in 2001.

Colorado projects included participation in the Great American Cleanup
efforts to help with a variety of cleanup, trail restoration, and other
outdoor projects at Bear Creek Regional Park in Colorado Springs to
painting, grounds and garden projects, furniture and technology
installation at Denver Housing Authority’s North Lincoln Opportunity

“As we celebrate our 16th annual Comcast Cares Day, we are so
proud to partner with these important organizations to give back in our
community,” said Rich Jennings, Comcast senior vice president for the
Mountain West Region. “It’s truly amazing what’s possible when thousands
of volunteers donate their time to make a difference in the lives of
others. I’m inspired by the community’s response to Comcast Cares Day,
and am so thankful for the participants who help to make this effort a
success today and throughout the year.”
