100 Days to Comcast Cares Day
At Comcast NBCUniversal, making a positive impact in the communities where our employees live and work is a core value that we embrace all year long.
Through our partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters, for example, hundreds of our employees mentor local school children at Comcast offices nationwide. They also serve as ambassadors to their local communities to help underserved families bridge the digital divide through access to technology. Additionally, our employees share their professional skills, from marketing, human resources and legal expertise, to help strengthen nonprofit organizations.
Each year, we celebrate this year-round commitment to communities through Comcast Cares Day, which this year will take place on April 21.
More than 100,000 volunteers will make change happen alongside their co-workers, family and friends by beautifying schools, renovating parks, hosting coding workshops and so much more. In 2017, volunteers improved more than 1,000 parks, schools, beaches and other community sites in the United States and 22 other countries. Since 2001, more than 930,000 Comcast Cares Day volunteers have donated their time and skills to improve nearly 9,300 projects across the United States and around the world.
Of course, we do not make this impact alone. We are grateful for the participation of many great organizations that help organize manage projects and recruit additional volunteers. Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Big Brothers Big Sisters, City Year, the National Urban League, UnidosUS, and Easterseals are some of our partners instrumental in the success of Comcast Cares Day. Save the date to join us this year, and be part of the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort.
