    Comcast Cares Day is a celebration of service and the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort. Every spring, tens of thousands of our employees, families, friends and local partners join us to make a difference in the communities we serve. All across the country, volunteers work together to plant gardens, beautify schools, repair community centers, clean riverbanks, and much more in their communities. 

    *ALL volunteers (bring your family and friends!) will receive a free breakfast, free lunch and a free t-shirt!
    This is not limited to students and parents of these schools.  We encourage church groups, boy scout troops and elementary feeder schools to participate as well.  See what you can do to make a difference by registering today!
    • Help beautify the school
    • Get involved in the community
    • Make a lasting impact in your neighborhood 

    Since the first Comcast Cares Day in 2001, more than half a million volunteers have contributed more than three million hours. In the words of company founder Ralph Roberts, "It’s a wonderful thing to have people work together for the benefit of others.  In 2013, a record 85,000-plus volunteers contributed more than half a million hours to improve more than 750 parks, schools, beaches, senior centers and other vital community sites around the world.

    Come join the fun!
