1,200 volunteers serve 30 area nonprofits on Comcast Cares Day

1,200 volunteers serve 30 area nonprofits on Comcast Cares Day On April 24, a volunteer crew from Comcast painted and cleaned at the Minneapolis Urban League’s Sharon Sayles Belton Community Center at 411 E. 38th St. in Minneapolis. The community center was one of more than two dozen work sites for “Comcast Cares Day.”

“We’re glad to help,” said Comcast’s project coordinator Robert Langle. “This building was damaged by last summer’s tornado and it gets lots of community use.”

Comcast has strong ties to the Minneapolis Urban League (MUL) throughout the year. Diana Hawkins, government affairs specialist for Comcast, serves on the MUL board and was at the community center for Saturday’s work session. This is the third year that a volunteer crew has worked at an MUL site for “Comcast Cares Day.”
