Comcast Cares Day
More than 3,000 Houston area Comcast NBCUniversal employees and their families, friends and community partners made change happen on May 4 as they volunteered to improve seven sites as part of the 18th annual Comcast Cares Day, the nation’s largest single-day volunteer event.
From using technology to create positive change, such as teaching digital literacy skills, to mentoring youth, to stocking food banks, to beautifying parks, Comcast NBCUniversal employees volunteer during this celebration and throughout the year to make a lasting impact. To date, more than 1 million Comcast Cares Day volunteers have contributed over 6 million service hours to improve local communities at more than 10,000 projects.
In Houston, one of the service sites was BARC Animal Shelter, where more than 200 Comcast NBCUniversal employees and their families joined Mayor Sylvester Turner to help landscape flower beds, power wash, repaint doors and do general cleanup on the grounds.
