Over 650 Comcast Connecticut employees, their families and friends will join more than 67,000 volunteers nationwide as they spend today, Saturday, April 21, 2012, participating in one of the country's largest corporate days of community service - the 11th Comcast Cares Day. Comcast's Connecticut volunteers will roll up their sleeves at nine sites across the state, which are among approximately 650 project sites across the country, to lend a hand to the communities the company serves.
Comcast volunteers will spend the day doing community clean-up, landscaping, and painting, and will install two "Born Learning Trails" - one in Branford at Foote Memorial Park and one in Waterbury -- in partnership with the United Way of Greater New Haven and the United Way of Greater Waterbury, respectively. A Born Learning Trail is a set of fun, physical learning activities that parents or caregivers can play with young children in an outdoor setting, arranged on a walking trail. Comcast volunteers installed New Haven's first Born Learning Trail at the Conte West Hills School during the 2008 Comcast Cares Day, Hartford's first trail at Burns Elementary School the following year and Middletown's first trail at Snow Elementary School in 2010.
Annual Day of Giving Expected to Attract 650 Volunteers at Nine Sites in the State and More Than 67,000 Volunteers at 650 Sites Nationwide.
