On Saturday, April 22, nearly 7,500 Comcast NBCUniversal employees and their families, friends and community partners volunteered at 14 schools and community organizations around Utah as part of the 16th annual Comcast Cares Day, the company said.
Comcast Cares Day is the culmination of Comcast NBCUniversal´s commitment to volunteerism that began when the company was founded more than 50 years ago.
From using technology to create positive change, such as wiring community centers and libraries and teaching digital literacy skills, to mentoring youth, to beautifying parks, Comcast NBCUniversal employees volunteer on this day, and throughout the year, to make a lasting impact.
This year, more than 100,000 volunteers participated in approximately 900 projects across the country and around the world. To date, volunteers have contributed nearly 5m volunteer hours at 7,700 projects since Comcast Cares Day began in 2001.
