Comcast Employees ‘Team UP’ across New England During National Volunteer Month

Comcast’s commitment to community service is embedded in our culture. This dedication is reflected in our Team UP volunteer program, which provides opportunities for employees to get involved in their communities. The name, Team UP, underscores that our work has the greatest reach when we join forces to make an impact.

Our employees Team UP with local organizations to support our communities year-round, especially for National Volunteer Month in April.

This year, employees across the New England Region volunteered with community partners on a variety of projects, including:

  • Adapting toys for children with disabilities with Easter Seals Massachusetts.
  • Sorting and packing diapers and adult incontinent products with the Connecticut Diaper Bank.
  • Building new beds for Vermont families in need with Sleep in Heavenly Peace, Inc.
  • Conducting STEM activities with fourth-grade students at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Holyoke in Massachusetts
  • Helping clients of Immigrant Family Services Institute strengthen their English language skills in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts.

Comcast also partnered with the United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut to coordinate a Levo International project in Hartford, Connecticut to help address area food insecurity. In response to this support, United Way’s Director of Corporate Engagement Phil said, “The United Way relies on volunteers and donors to ensure the well-being of children and families in central and northeastern Connecticut. We truly appreciate all Comcast does to support the local community.

Our employees value volunteering for a variety of reasons, and a few of this year’s participants shared why they got involved.

TeamUp Employees Giving back

Becca, Director of Community Impact, based in Foxboro, Massachusetts: “Here at Comcast, I’ve had the privilege of managing numerous volunteer projects in our communities, from providing support to Haitian earthquake victims in 2010 to helping build Boston’s first mini-golf course behind the Dorchester YMCA. What touches me most is the simple act of my colleagues volunteering their valuable time to lead and participate in service projects.”

Employees making beds

Eric, Installation & Service Technician, based in Burlington, Vermont: “Building bunk beds for families in need was a good wood-working project to do with my co-workers and our families. It was also incredibly rewarding to see the finished product and to know we supported a great cause.”

• Conducting STEM activities with fourth-grade students at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Holyoke in Massachusetts

Kellis, Community Account Representative based in West Hartford, Connecticut: “I’ve grown up volunteering and I appreciate that Comcast organizes events that are enjoyable and rewarding to participate in. It’s also a nice way to meet coworkers outside of the people we work with every day.
