PLEASE NOTE: Comcast Cares Day is on April 27th, 2013, not April 25th. We apologize for the error in the SectorNews.

Join Comcast as they celebrate their signature day of service, Comcast Cares Day, on April 27th at 8:15 AM at approximately 23 Massachusetts locations and wrap up around noon. This day of service is a great way to give back to our communities throughout the Commonwealth, and there is also the opportunity for recognition funding for 501c3 groups with fifteen or more participants.

It has always been the Comcast way to join in and give back to their neighbors and their neighborhoods. That’s why Comcast’s community investment strategy focuses on providing access to innovative technology, volunteering their time, giving financial support and partnering with great organizations.

This year, Comcast expects to reach two important milestones since Comcast Cares Day began in 2001. First, they anticipate that they will achieve 3 million volunteer hours and second, they believe their total number of volunteers will surpass half a million. They will also, for the first time, be joined by their NBCUniversal colleagues overseas who will be working on community projects in London. In addition, this year’s Comcast Cares Day occurs the same week as Earth Day – so they will truly be part of an amazing global celebration of caring for our communities worldwide.

Below you will find a list of project sites where your organization can participate in Comcast Cares Day. Interested organizations should contact Rebecca Fracassa at 617-279-9599 or Rebecca_Fracassa@cable.comcast.com.
