Feeling philanthropic? Comcast stopped by Fresh Living to talk about their Comcast Cares Day and how you can give back to your community.
Comcast Cares Day is April 22nd, and is the nation's largest single day corporate volunteer effort with employees, partners and friends joining together to clean, rejuvenate and beautify projects around Utah.
On April 22nd, Comcast will host 10 service projects throughout Utah.
Comcast works with non-profits, schools, shelters, cities and towns to plan service projects that will have the most impact on each organization. Service projects range from planting community gardens, painting, landscaping, deep cleaning, organizing, installing fences, planting trees - you name it! Comcast provides all of the supplies for each project, and partnering organizations will help by providing the manpower by recruiting community volunteers. Many of the non-profits and schools that we partner with are in desperate need of some love and care.
Comcast is proving FREE breakfast, FREE lunch and a Comcast Cares Day t-shirt to all volunteers who show up on April 22nd! Partnering non-profits, schools and cities receive a Comcast Foundation Grant for participating. The funding is based on the number of volunteers who register and show up on Comcast Cares Day to volunteer. Partners can use the financial grants to help further the improvement of their organizations.
This year, Comcast will host service projects at the:
- YWCA of Utah
- The Road Home - homeless shelter in SLC
- Boys and Girls Club of Murray
- Highland High School
- Walden School of Liberal Arts in Provo
- Volunteers will be planted over 25 trees and much more in N. Logan City and N. Ogden City
- Volunteers will help spruce up 2 schools in need, Cyprus H.S. in Magna and Redwood Elementary School in W. Valley
