Comcast recently partnered with Greater Richmond ARC for Comcast's annual nationwide day of service.
Comcast employees and their families and friends, in partnership with the Greater Richmond ARC, volunteered their time to help beautify the ARC's Camp Baker location as part of Comcast's ninth annual 'Comcast Cares Day' on Saturday, April 24, 2010. Volunteers cleared a wheelchair- and bike-accessible nature trail, built a fire pit, stained handicap ramps and playground equipment, built a storage and equipment shed, landscaped flower beds and and spruced up the area in and around Camp Baker for this year's Summer Camp. In addition, Comcast bought several new bikes in various sizes for ARC campers.
In 2010, approximately 55,000 volunteers will participate in an expected 550 projects nationwide for Comcast Cares Day, making it one of the largest single-day corporate volunteer efforts in the country.
