More than 67,000 Comcast and NBCUniversal employees will be working up a sweat this Saturday (4/21) as they participate in the 11th annual Comcast Cares Day. The nationwide event is billed as one of the nation’s largest days of corporate volunteerism.
“For more than a decade, our employees, their families and their friends have made Comcast Cares Day one of the nation’s most impactful corporate volunteering events in our nation,” said Comcast CEO Brian Roberts. “We are proud of the cities and neighborhoods where we work and live, and Comcast Cares Day provides a terrific opportunity to celebrate those communities by coming together and giving back to them.”
During this year’s Comcast Cares Day, approximately 650 projects will take place in 39 states and Washington, DC. That includes some big projects planned in communities where Comcast and NBCUniversal employees work together, including New York City, Orlando, and Los Angeles.
Since 2001, Comcast says it has provided $2.5 billion in cash and in-kind support to national and local non-profit organizations.
