#ComcastCaresDay

Join Us for a Day of Service and Help LAF Raise Money – Win, Win!

Join us Saturday, April 30th in Tallahassee for the 15th Annual #ComcastCaresDay!

Comcast Cares Day volunteers will partner with Oak Ridge Elementary School for a day of positive change and beautification. Comcast Cares Day is an annual celebration of the company’s year-round commitment to service and one of the ways that Comcast NBCUniversal demonstrates its commitment to making change happen in its shared communities. Join the more than 700,000 Comcast Cares Day volunteers who have given more than 4 million hours of service at 6,800 projects in communities around the world. To bolster the efforts of volunteers, Comcast has also provided more than $18 million in Comcast Foundation grants to local partner organizations.
