Comcast Cares Day 2012

For the past 11 years, Comcast employees across the country have participated in one of the nation’s biggest single-day volunteer efforts: Comcast Cares Day. On Saturday, April 21, 2012, this inspiring day of service took place in many cities across our nation including Seattle.

Comcast employees and City Year corps members have worked together to improve their communities for over ten years.

Comcast employees from Seattle and the surrounding areas returned to El Centro de la Raza on Beacon Hill for a second year in a row. El Centro is a community hub for advocacy on behalf of the Latino Community in Seattle. Through their comprehensive programs and services, El Centro works to build unity across all racial and economic sectors, to organize, empower, and defend the most vulnerable and marginalized populations and to bring justice, dignity, equality, and freedom to all the peoples of the world.

In total, 190 Comcast employees participated in a variety of important service projects at El Centro de la Raza including painting, groundswork and pavement repairs. The combined effort of the time contributed by volunteers resulted in $25,000 worth of financial capital of the day’s service.

Thanks to everyone who participated!
