Comcast Cares Day
Volunteer Florida is excited to work with our partner Comcast to expand volunteer opportunities in Florida through the 2018 Comcast Cares Day projects on Saturday, April 21st. Comcast Cares Day brings together Comcast employees, their families, friends and community partners around the world to volunteer and make change happen in local communities. Since its founding in 2001, Comcast Cares Day has evolved from a modest service effort with 6,100 volunteers, to a global program of giving back with 105,000 plus volunteers leaving their mark on the communities in which they live and work in.
