More than 100,000 Comcast employees nationwide participated Saturday in the 15th Annual Comcast Cares Day and are working to improve their local communities.
Civic service is an important part of the corporate mission of Comcast and its founding values, said Tracy Pitcher, regional senior vice president at Comcast.
"This concept of giving back to the communities in which we work and live is in our DNA," said Pitcher, who was landscaping at the YMCA in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood.
Hundreds of volunteers were also at the site, where a miniature golf course was installed for the children at the YMCA.
