Participate in Comcast Cares Day
Comcast is making a difference for Washington Communities. On May 4, more than 3,000 volunteers will “make change happen” as they support 27 nonprofit organizations as part of the 18th annual Comcast Cares Day.
You can find volunteer projects in Aberdeen, Auburn, Bellingham, Bremerton, Everett, Kirkland, Lynnwood, Olympia, Puyallup, Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma and more. With nearly 30 Comcast Cares Day projects expect in Washington this year, chances are that there will be one near you. Comcast wants you to roll up your sleeves and join in, bring your family and friends too! Be a part of one of the nation’s largest corporate volunteer efforts, and sign up for Comcast Cares Day on May 4th through our volunteer portal at www.comcastinthecommunity.com.
Comcast Cares about Homelessness
Many of the community projects during Comcast Cares Day directly supported those living without shelter or who are in transitional housing. Whether sorting donations at the food bank, packing hygiene kits, cleaning up parks and YMCA camps, all of the projects support our communities.
According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, 30 out of every 10,000 people experienced homelessness in Washington state in 2018, and of those, 22,304 -- 35 percent -- were chronically homeless, with 60 percent staying in unsheltered locations such as in a tent or on the street.
In King County, approximately 12,112 people experienced homelessness, including 1,518 unaccompanied homeless youth and 921 homeless veterans. * Through Comcast Cares, community members, nonprofits and local organizations will team up to support homeless populations, strengthening the continuum of care one neighborhood at a time.
Sign up and be part of the 18th annual Comcast Cares Day.
I'll be helping setup the Big Brothers Big Sisters Auction next Saturday, so be sure to follow me on social media to see my experience. You can sign up for that or other community projects at www.comcastinthecommunity.com
