Last Friday from the Tutt Boys and Girls Club in the Pikes Peak region in Colorado Springs,

Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux, American Gold Medalists and members of the US Olympic Women’s Hockey team, joined David L. Cohen, SVP and Chief Diversity Officer for Comcast, Colorado Springs’ Mayor John Suthers and several additional Comcast employees and executives, conducted a community activity for 100 kids in attendance. In addition to giving a talk on careers and how to achieve success in life, the Elementary school children in attendance received a donation of 100 laptops as part of the program Internet Essentials, the largest broadband adoption program in the country for low-income families.

Additionally, the executives present announced a $25,000 grant from Comcast to Olympic City USA to fund community programs and youth engagement initiatives, including sport scholarships for local youth, enhanced Olympic City USA field days and the expansion of community appearances by local Team USA athletes.

All these activities and donations were part the 18th annual Comcast Cares Day, which seeks to illustrate the company’s spirit of volunteerism to create lasting, positive change in their communities. Throughout Colorado, about 6,000 Comcast employees and their families will volunteer at nearly 100 community organizations.

Last year in Colorado, Comcast contributed more than $15 million in financial and in-kind resources to over 200 organizations doing important work in our communities.  

Since the first Comcast Cares Day in 2001, 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 in 23 countries.
