Comcast Cares Day is a day employees set aside each year to give back to the communities where we live and work. In 2011, Comcast is partnering with more than 60 non-profits throughout the region on this special day of service, with over 5,000 volunteer opportunities. Nationally, more than 62,000 volunteers will mobilize across the country at this largest ever-single company day of service.
