SAVANNAH – On Saturday, April 25, more than 180 local Comcast employees, along with their families and friends, volunteered to improve the Headstart programs in Savannah and Hinesville as part of Comcast’s eighth annual “Comcast Cares Day.” At the same time across the country, more than 50,000 Comcast volunteers participated in this annual day of service, which is one of the largest single days of corporate volunteer efforts in the country. Comcast Cares Day is one way that Comcast helps to power dreams and demonstrate a year-round commitment to making a difference in the communities it serves.
 The Comcast systems in Savannah and Hinesville are partnering with the Economic Opportunity Authority to help local Headstart programs. Headstart is the area’s largest community-based early childhood educational program. The program includes social, medical, psychological, nutritional and special services for children and their families. Comcast employees, family members, community volunteers and EOA representatives will fix handicap accessible ramps, clean and repair lighting and playground equipment, replace picnic tables, plant gardens and more.  
 “Comcast Cares Day is an event I look forward to every year,” said Comcast Chairman and CEO Brian L. Roberts. “It is truly a moving experience to work with thousands of our employees, their families, friends and our partners across the country to help make people’s dreams a reality and make a positive impact in our neighborhoods.”
 “Comcast is proud to be an active member of the Savannah and Hinesville communities, and Comcast Cares Day is our commitment to improving the quality of life in communities we serve,” added Comcast Savannah Vice President and General Manager Mike Daves. “There is nothing more rewarding than giving back, and I’m grateful to the 183 Comcast Cares Day volunteers who will be donating their time to help make such a big difference.”
 The Comcast Foundation will also donate more than $1.5 million in grants to local community partner organizations across the country on behalf of each employee and family member who volunteers on Comcast Cares Day. The grants will help Comcast’s community partners continue their mission of serving the community throughout the year.
