On April 21, 2018, more than 3,000 Comcast NBCUniversal employees, along with their families, friends and community partners, will contribute to 27 different volunteer projects across Washington state as part of the company´s 17th annual Comcast Cares Day, the company said.
Comcast Cares Day is the largest corporate day of service in the United States, with this year´s efforts marking the one millionth volunteer participant. This year, the company expects more than 100,000 volunteers to participate at project sites around the world.

Comcast volunteers will sort donations at the Everett Food Bank, construct a portable computer lab at Mary´s Place in Seattle, pack hygiene kits for Spokane´s Union Gospel Mission Crisis Shelter for Women and Children and craft blankets for the Tacoma Rescue Mission, among other projects across the state.
