2012 Comcast Cares Day

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

April 26, 2012 | Chicago, IL

On Saturday, April 21, Comcast marked more than two decades of Comcast Cares Day where thousands of local Comcast employees, families and friends volunteer to improve neighborhoods across the country. It is the 11th Annual Comcast Cares Day and is believed to be one of the largest single-days of volunteer service in corporate America. This year, the national day of community service was held at Erie Neighborhood House doing a spring spruce-up project.

“At Comcast, we are proud to improve the quality of life in the local communities where our customers and employees have lived and worked for nearly 50 years,” said John Crowley, Senior Vice President of Comcast in Illinois, NW Indiana and SW Michigan. “We anticipate over 67,000 Comcast and NBCUniversal employees, families and friends to volunteer their time on approximately 670 projects across the country – and we are especially proud to give back to Chicago’s West Town, Humboldt Park and Little Village communities this year.

“We are grateful that Comcast is partnering with us to freshen up our facility for the more than 80 families a day that that visit us,” said Celena Roldan, Executive Director of Erie Neighborhood House.

On Comcast Cares Day, Comcast employees, families and friends cleaned and dusted our Early Childhood Education facility before applying a fresh coat of paint on the walls to liven up the decor.
