On Saturday, April 30, 2016, more than 3,200 Comcast NBCUniversal employees and their families, friends and community partners volunteered to improve several neighborhoods and nonprofits around Puget Sound and Spokane as part of the 15th annual Comcast Cares Day.

We described the projects in an earlier post. In this post we collect photographs and news stories to help employees and others keep track of all that was accomplished. This year, a record amount of images were shared through the hashtag #ComcastCaresDay. Click here to see some of the posts from the day.

Comcast Cares Day, which takes place each April during National Volunteer Month, is Comcast NBCUniversal’s companywide celebration of their year-round commitment to service and the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort in the country.
