Last Saturday was Comcast Cares Day, and 67,000 Comcast employees, their families and their friends offered their time and elbow grease to nearly 650 projects in 39 states and Washington, D.C. Comcast and NBCUniversal volunteers painted schools; planted trees and gardens; cleaned up parks and trails; and beautified community centers.

But perhaps the biggest gifts during the 11th Comcast Cares Day were the smiles shared by the employees, the executives, the volunteers and the communities where they made a lasting impact on this day of service.

It was another day of memories as Comcast, NBC and Telemundo all hosted rewarding projects. Here's a look at our biggest day of community investment.
