Comcast makes a difference at Boys & Girls Clubs

Saturday, April 21 was Comcast Cares Day, a day when the company’s employees supported community projects and helped make a difference in 16 cities throughout Colorado.

In Denver, Comcast employees volunteered at three Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver. Volunteers helped clean up our Wilfley and Owen Clubs and get them ready for upcoming summer activities. Volunteers also helped out at our Denver Broncos Club, where the annual Race Against Violence was scheduled to take place. Due to the weather, the race had to be changed to an indoor fitness carnival, but the event was still successful thanks to the volunteers’ support.

The activities at our Clubs were just a small sample of the amazing work Comcast volunteers did throughout the day. Thank you to all the volunteers who supported Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver and helped out Denver kids and the community.
