Volunteers needed for Comcast Cares Day

WEIRTON - Volunteers are needed to assist with a beautification project at Starvaggi Memorial Park as part of this year's Comcast Cares Day.

Employees of Comcast and NBC/Universal, as well as their families, each year join with residents wishing to volunteer their time on a variety of community projects.

In 2012, volunteers at more than 600 sites in 39 states and Washington, D.C. donated more than 450,000 community service hours.

This year, volunteers and Comcast employees will be gathering at Starvaggi Parkbeginning at 8 a.m. on April 27.

Comcast employee Jeremy Straight said part of the reasoning for selecting Starvaggi Park is the small work force usually available to Weirton's Parks Department.

"It's going to be a huge help to them," Straight said, noting some of the work will include beautification and landscaping.

Similar activities are being planned across the country.

Having residents from the community volunteer their time will benefit a town more than just through the work performed, company representatives explained.

"For as many volunteers as we get, Comcast will donate money to the community," Comcast employee Carlos Ovalle said.

For information, or to register as a volunteer, contact Straight at (412) 926-5453 or Ovalle at (740) 457-8858.
