Comcast's 13th Comcast Care Day Helps to Improve The Salvation Army's Green County Service Center

Released 30 April 2014

On Saturday, April 26, local Comcast employees and their families, friends and community partners vowed to “make change happen” as they volunteered to improve The Salvation Army’s Greene County Service Center as part of Comcast’s 13th Comcast Cares Day.

Comcast Cares Day takes place each April during National Volunteer Month.  It is Comcast and NBCUniversal’s signature day of service and the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort. Comcast volunteers  partnered with Salvation Army advisory board, staff, and volunteers, as well as other community volunteers and National Honor Society students from Carmichaels to perform planting, landscaping and building of shelves at The Salvation Army’s Greene County Service Center. Comcast provided all of the supplies including paint, landscape materials, cleaning products and t-shirts.

This year the company expects more than 80,000 Comcast and NBCUniversal volunteers to participate in over 700 projects across the country and around the globe. To date, more than half a million volunteers have contributed over three million volunteer hours since Comcast Cares Day started in 2001.

“We’re proud to partner with Salvation Army to improve the Waynesburg community during our 13th Comcast Cares Day,” said Jim Samaha, senior vice president of Comcast’s Keystone Region. “The hard work of our volunteers who will be donating their time to help make such a big difference in the lives of others is inspiring, and I am thankful to all of our participants who helped to make the day a success.”
