From April through mid-May, more than 8,600 local Comcast NBCUniversal employees and their families, friends and community partners “made change happen” as they volunteered at nearly 100 project sites across Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, D.C. as part of the 18th annual Comcast Cares Day. Activities included the beautification of schools, sorting and serving food, landscaping community centers and parks, hosting local blood drives and more.

We’re proud of the positive difference our volunteers make on Comcast Cares Day and every day of the year as they give back to the neighborhoods where our employees and customers live and work. We always look forward to strengthening these communities alongside our great local partners. Here’s a look at some of the impact our volunteers made this year in the Beltway Region:
