18th annual Comcast Cares Day

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 6 maggio 2019

Today, as part of the 18th annual Comcast Cares Day, nearly 1,000 Northern California Comcast NBCUniversal employees and their families, friends and community partners worked alongside Paradise High School students, teachers and administrators to clean, paint, plant trees, landscape and beautify the campus ahead of this June’s graduation ceremony, which will be the first since the devastating Camp Fire in Fall of 2018.
On Nov. 8, 2018, the lives of Paradise residents were changed forever when the Camp Fire destroyed most of the city, killing 86 people, destroying nearly 14,000 homes and numerous businesses and burning more than 150,000 acres. Thankfully, and perhaps miraculously, the structure of Paradise High School was mostly spared. Still, due to safety hazards and other concerns, classes were moved to a temporary location in Chico and plans remain underway for a full return to the Paradise campus in time for the new school year this Fall.A signature project on Comcast Cares Day today involved the painting of a mural by the artist Shane Grammer, whose portrait of a woman on a friend’s chimney went viral shortly after the fire. When Comcast learned that the Paradise High School seniors wanted to engage Grammer to create a mural as a thank you to the school, and as something to remember them by, the company stepped in to fund the effort.During a special ceremony at the school this morning, featuring Comcast executives, Congressman Doug LaMalfa and California State Senator Jim Nielsen, Comcast also announced that 238 graduating seniors from Paradise will receive a laptop computer.
Paradise High School students and educators pride themselves on their resilience. The school’s longtime motto “Rise Up” is a fitting way to describe the grit, courage and determination displayed throughout the community. It was in this spirit that Comcast, as part of Cares Day, approached Paradise High School administrators offering to help refurbish, restore and renew the campus exteriors, common areas and school grounds in preparation for June’s graduation ceremony.Comcast Cares Day is more than just a day – it is an illustration of the spirit of volunteerism that Comcast employees bring to life each and every day. From using technology to create positive change, such as teaching digital literacy skills and mentoring youth, to stocking food banks, revitalizing homeless shelters and beautifying parks, Comcast NBCUniversal employees volunteer during this celebration and throughout the year to make a lasting impact. To date, more than 1 million Comcast Cares Day volunteers have contributed over 6 million service hours to improve local communities at more than 10,000 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.The Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation will also provide grants to local partner organizations on behalf of volunteers who contribute their time on Comcast Cares Day. The grants will help Comcast’s partners continue their mission of serving the community throughout the year. To date, the Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation has awarded nearly $25 million in grants to local nonprofit organizations who have served as partners on Comcast Cares Day.
