Employees Donate Time Consulting With Local Nonprofits

Later this week, tens of thousands of Comcast and NBCUniversal employees, and their friends and families, along with hundreds of nonprofit organizations, will join hands to drive positive change in the communities we serve during the 17th annual Comcast Cares Day.

Many volunteers will paint schools and community centers, clean parks and playgrounds, and sort and stock food and clothing to be shared with children and families in local communities.

Some volunteers will also give back in a more direct way – fielding questions and offering solutions to nonprofit executives about preparing budgets, long-term financial strategies, marketing tips and goals, and more.

For the second consecutive year, our Comcast Cares Day projects will include the opportunity for nonprofits to meet with our corporate professionals to help solve some challenges in areas including human resources, finance and marketing/communications.

“We love to talk about what we do, and we love to feel we are valuable,” said Rebecca Wright, vice president of human resources for Studio Operations at NBCUniversal in Los Angeles. Wright has helped organize a free consulting workshop for 12 local nonprofits whose leaders on Comcast Cares Day will tap into the business expertise of NBCUniversal professionals. The nonprofit leaders will rotate from table to table, meeting with different professionals and discussing their organizations key challenges.

Beyond benefiting the nonprofits, Wright said, “Our employees get to learn a little bit about consulting and what that looks like, and to build their skills through that process.”
