Comcast Cares Day at Pebblebrook High

The 2017 Comcast Cares Day took place on Saturday, April 22. The signature event was held at Pebblebrook High School in Mableton, where hundreds of volunteers helped refurbish the school’s athletic fields. 

Philadelphia-based Comcast last week announced it is soliciting proposals for any qualifying organization across the Southeast wishing to participate in this year’s Comcast Cares Day, set for May 4. The deadline for submission is Feb. 1.

Comcast is seeking proposals from community-based organizations, such as public nonprofits, school districts and others that provide community service within the Comcast service area. For more information on how to qualify, or to download an application, visit

Comcast Cares Day is more than just a day – it’s the culmination of Comcast NBCUniversal’s commitment to volunteerism that began when the company was founded in 1963. From using technology to create positive change, such as wiring community centers and libraries and teaching digital literacy skills, to mentoring youth or beautifying parks, Comcast NBCUniversal employees volunteer on this day, and throughout the year, to make a lasting impact.

“Each year on Comcast Cares Day, we enjoy teaming up with hundreds of incredible organizations across the Southeast to make a difference in our communities,” Doug Guthrie, Comcast’s regional senior vice president, said in a news release. “We are thankful to the volunteers who always make this day of giving a success, and look forward to building new partnerships this year.”
