DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On May 4, 2019, nearly 6,000 local Comcast
employees and their families, friends and community
partners will “make change happen” as they volunteer to improve nearly

Comcast Cares Day is more than just a day – it is an illustration of the

projects. This year, the Company expects more than 100,000 volunteers
from Comcast, NBCUniversal, and for the first time Sky, to participate
in projects across the country and around the world.

Colorado projects include clean-up projects in parks and schools around
the state, maintenance projects for local Boys & Girls Clubs from
Colorado Springs to Steamboat, and work to prepare Easterseals

give back to our local communities across Colorado,” said Rich Jennings,
Senior Vice President of the Comcast Mountain West Region. “It is
