As we detailed in a previous blog post, there were a dozen sites in Washington where more than 3,000 volunteers assembled on Comcast Cares Day 2015. Every year we try to collect news stories, videos, photographs, and social media posts about the event, mostly so our employees can remember and see how their work makes a difference. And that’s this post! To avoid duplication, we don’t reprint the list of things we were doing at each site – you can find that in our original post, and then of course the photographs, stories and other images show that work anyway. If we’re missing something, please email me at walter_neary at cable.comcast.com.
