Comcast NBCUniversal celebrated the 16th anniversary of Comcast Cares Day on Saturday, April 22 with more than 100,000 volunteers working at over 1,000 project sites across 20 countries. In New York City, employees from across the company, including NBC New York and Telemundo 47 team members, came together to help landscape and clean the shoreline at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Comcast Cares Day has grown to become the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer event. In 2016, a record 108,000 volunteers improved more than 930 parks, schools, beaches, senior centers and other vital community sites. Since 2001, more than 800,000 Comcast NBCUniversal employees, their friends, family members and our community partners have volunteered nearly 5 million service hours at more than 7,700 projects in communities across the United States and around the world.
This day has become an annual tradition for tens of thousands of our employees, their friends and families, and our nonprofit partners as we join together to make change happen in our communities and celebrate our company culture of caring year round.
