SCRANTON, PA – On Saturday, April 30, local Comcast employees and their families and friends will clean and perform repairs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeastern Pennsylvania, 609 Ash Street in Scranton, as part of Comcast Cares Day. At the same time across the country, more than 62,000 Comcast volunteers will participate in this annual day of service, which is one of the largest single days of corporate volunteer efforts in the country.
“Without the support of Comcast, we would never have the time and resources to undertake some of these projects. We appreciate Comcast’s partnership with us and hope to continue it for many years to come,” says Tricia DiBiasi Thomas, Club executive director.
This will be Comcast’s 10th Comcast Cares Day. Since its inception in 2001, Comcast employees, their families and friends have dedicated over two million hours of service. The Company has also committed more than $10 million in grants to organizations nationwide. Comcast Cares Day is one way that Comcast helps to power dreams and demonstrate a year-round commitment to making a difference in the communities it serves.
Beginning at 9 a.m., Comcast volunteers will work on a variety of projects at the Club, including organizing a food pantry, planting flowers around the entrance and clearing brush from the parking lot.
The Club is also seeking volunteers from the community. Comcast will be making a monetary donation for each volunteer recruited. For more information, please call 570-342-8709.
