Looking for a fun way to LIVE UNITED?

Join us as we come together with hundreds of local Comcast employees, families and friends to build 222 kid-sized picnic tables for 73 Nashville elementary schools during the seventh annual "Comcast Cares Day" on May 3. Enjoy a block party complete with a music DJ and kids’ activities. You might even be in a Comcast commercial – they’re filming the event for a spot to appear in the Middle Tennessee area!

Across the country, more than 50,000 Comcast volunteers will participate in this year’s day of service, making it one of the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer efforts. Comcast employees will be joined by these partners: Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, staff members and volunteers from United Way of Metropolitan Nashville, PENCIL Foundation, the Urban League of Middle Tennessee, metro Nashville schools, and associates of the Home Depot in Madison, Tennessee.
The Home Depot store in Madison has donated building materials and supplies for the project.
