Comcast Celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Life and Legacy

On January 16, Comcast employees celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by participating in MLK Day of Service across the Beltway Region, including:

  • Washington, D.C.: The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Holiday D.C. Peace Walk and Parade and the MLK Day Wellness Fair. Participants marched with elected officials, non-profit organizations, marching bands, military groups, local businesses and more in honor of Dr. King Jr.
  • Silver Spring, MD: The Maryland Governor-Elect’s Office on Service and Volunteerism’s Day of Service at Interfaith Works. Volunteers helped paint and restore residence halls, sort clothing, and prepare meals for members of the community.
  • Richmond, VA: The Clean City Commission’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day of Service. Volunteers helped to clean up Saint James Street.

These activities align with Team UP – our always-on, 365-days-a-year volunteerism program that provides Comcast employees opportunities to further their involvement in local communities.
