Members of the community are invited to join Comcast employees, their family, friends and our local community partners as we volunteer at Dr. Martin Luther King Community Center in Newtonville as part of the 18th annual Comcast Cares Day. 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. Comcast Cares Day is one of the largest corporate commitments to volunteerism and service in America. Since the first Comcast Cares Day in 2001, more than 1 million Comcast Cares Day volunteers have contributed over 6 million service hours to improve local communities at more than 10,000 projects around the world – from assembling care packages for U.S. military service members to mentoring kids about technology to beautifying parks to stocking food banks.
