Comcast has a longstanding commitment of partnering with military community, serving organizations that support the needs of veterans, servicemembers, and military families. And for the third year, we are proud to work with Boxes to Boots, a Connecticut-based non-profit, during its annual “Operations Cares” activation.
On November 18, several of our local team members will work alongside hundreds of Boxes to Boots volunteers at McGee Middle School in Berlin, CT, to help wrap and ship over 1,500 holiday care packages. This initiative is part of Team UP, Comcast’s national volunteerism program that provides opportunities for everyone to get more involved in their local communities, and Boxes to Boots’ ongoing mission to bring smiles to military personnel who cannot be home with their families for the holidays.
