Comcasters partner with the community on Comcast Cares Day

Comcast Cares Day volunteers paint a fence.

If it needed painting, pruning, planting, mowing, or cleaning during the week of April 17, a green-clad army of volunteers were there to make it happen. Nearly 1,000 Comcast employees, family members, friends and community partners united as one to lend a hand at 16 service projects in the Indiana communities we serve during Comcast Cares Day. Comcast Cares Day is a companywide celebration of Comcast’s year-round commitment to service and the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort in the country.

“Part of what makes Comcast Cares Day so special is that we bring together not only our employees, but their friends, family members and other community members who wish to join our efforts in making Indiana an even greater place to live,” said Tim Collins, regional senior vice president for Comcast’s Heartland Region, which includes Indiana.

Comcast volunteers pitched-in at projects at Girls, Inc. of Monroe County in Bloomington, United Way of Madison County in Anderson, the YWCA in Fort Wayne, Clinton County Boys and Girls Club in Frankfort, Indianapolis Parks and Rec, McAllister Recreation Center in Lafayette and many more.

“This is where community progress happens and it wouldn’t be possible without great corporate partners such as Comcast,” said Frankfort, Indiana Mayor Chris McBarnes.

This year, our company expected more than 100,000 volunteers to participate in approximately 900 projects across the country and around the world.  Since Comcast Cares Day began in 2001, volunteers have contributed nearly 5 million volunteer hours at 7,700 projects nationwide.
