Comcast Cares Day Volunteer Opportunities in the Community

Comcast is gearing up for the 18th annual Comcast Cares Day where Comcast employees will work alongside their family, friends, community partners and members of the local community to make change happen – in the communities where they live and work. There are hundreds of projects taking place across the county, and a number of projects across NJ. I noted a few below happening in Atlantic, Cape May and Monmouth counties that I thought may be of interest to your readers (as they are invited to register to join us)! Please note the dates of the projects vary.

Would you consider sharing any of these volunteer opportunities with readers in advance, or coming out to cover any of these projects day-of? The impact is huge when we come together as a community – and guaranteed good visuals! Please contact Alex Wachman at Alexandra_Wachman@comcast.com for additional information on any of the projects listed here.

Established in 2011, by a Comcast employee, Impact Harvest Farm was a vision that became reality — set up to serve the local community by growing fresh produce on farms in Buena and Hammonton, NJ. Now, Impact Harvest is able to provide fresh produce to local families in need of assistance. On Comcast Cares Day, volunteers will help refresh and prep the community garden Comcast Cares Day volunteers helped create a few years ago at the Dr. Martin Luther King Community Center in Newtonville. Tasks include expanding garden beds, general clean up and prep for growing season and planting flowers.
