This back-to-school season, Comcast Spotlight, the advertising sales division of Comcast Cable, joined the Kids In Need Foundation (KINF), a nonprofit that provides free school supplies, to support local communities and donate classroom essentials to more than 2,600 children across the country. As part of this effort, Comcast Spotlight and KINF donated supplies to more than 500 students from Samuels Elementary School in Denver. Comcast Spotlight recently visited the school to handout backpacks with notebooks, folders, glue sticks, pencils, crayons, scissors and more.

“Comcast Spotlight’s nationwide effort with the Kids In Need Foundation is one example of how we are committed to improving our communities,” said Tina Cline, Comcast Spotlight Regional Marketing Director. “Every child deserves a chance at a bright future. Now 2,600 children will be able to start the school year with resources to help them achieve.”

Comcast Spotlight is also donating backpacks with school supplies to students in Baltimore; Boston; East Orange, New Jersey and Stockton, California.

“It is important for every child to have access to school supplies, as these resources are a vital part of learning and succeeding now and in the future,” said Travis Parrill, Comcast Spotlight Senior Vice President, Operations. “Comcast Spotlight is committed to making a positive impact in the markets we serve and excited to work with the Kids In Need Foundation to equip thousands of students with the tools to start school prepared.”

“When students have the school supplies they need, our surveys show that class participation, self-esteem and interest in learning increases,” said Renay Dossman, executive director, Kids In Need Foundation. “We want to say thank you to Comcast Spotlight for providing backpacks filled with supplies to so many kids this back-to-school season. Because of Comcast Spotlight, more students will walk into a more equitable learning environment this year.”
