Volunteers Help Out on Comcast Cares Day
April 26 is Comcast Cares Day, and volunteer initiatives took place across the country.
Comcast employees and other volunteers were at the Boys and Girls Club of Central Illinois in Springfield for various projects. About 200 people were landscaping and sprucing up the facility. While they were working on a weekend, it's something the volunteers enjoy doing.
"It's something they want to do, they enjoy doing," Libbie Stehn-Tumulty of Comcast Community Affairs said. "They like to see the before and after of their efforts. So we've really had some success bringing out not only employees, family, friends. Boys and Girls Club also brought out a bunch of groups from basketball groups to church groups, so it's been a great day for us."
Comcast estimates more than 80,000 volunteers will take part in more than 700 projects across the country today. Volunteers will help with nearly 80 community projects throughout the state of Illinois.
