November 30, 2017

This #GivingTuesday, Comcast NBCUniversal awarded $250,000 to 25 Houston-area nonprofit organizations, supporting local relief efforts. These funds will help provide immediate resources and will aid in long-term rebuilding efforts.

Comcast NBCUniversal has a long history of supporting communities in their time of need. As southeast Texas continues to recover from the impact of Hurricane Harvey, Comcast NBCUniversal is working with communities to support recovery and rebuilding efforts in Houston where families live and work.

The following organizations received $10,000 each from Comcast NBCUniversal:

  • Association for the Advancement of Mexican Americans
  • BakerRipley
  • Bee Busy Wellness Center
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston
  • Boat People SOS
  • Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Houston
  • Bread of Life
  • Career and Recovery Services

This year’s commitment is another step in Comcast NBCUniversal’s pledge to providing a combination of financial and additional resources to assist with the relief efforts in Houston. The company initially donated over one million dollars that was shared between Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and the American Red Cross.
