What an amazing effort!
More than 62,000 volunteers came out to work at over 620 project sites across the country today where they planted trees, painted community centers and schools, cleaned animal shelters and public parks, set up computer labs, and stocked food banks as part of the 10th Comcast Cares Day. Thousands of Comcasters were joined by their families, friends, and community partners from the National Urban League, City Year, NCLR, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys & Girls Clubs, and One Economy, among many others others. The day also marked two additional and significant milestones - we surpassed 2 million hours of service since Comcast Cares Day first began in 2001 and have contributed more than $10 million to organizations on this day.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time helping others. You made it another incredible day of service, and you truly powered dreams in our communities.
