Volunteers gives Columbia Park some TLC
More than 100 volunteers from Comcast, the city of Troutdale and Reynolds High School JROTC recently spruced up Troutdales Columbia Park through Comcast Cares Day.
All together, 1,900 volunteers helped schools and nonprofit organizations across Oregon and southwest Washington during the 13th Comcast Cares Day Saturday, April 26.
Columbia Park volunteers removed 20 trash bags of litter, widened and refreshed numerous trails with new bark chips, removed saplings to open up sight lines and restored trodden areas within the woods.
Since the inaugural event in 2001, more than 500,000 volunteers have contributed upwards of 3 million volunteer hours. Comcast Cares Day takes place each April during National Volunteer Month.
The Comcast Foundation plans to provide grants to local community partner organizations across the country on behalf of those who volunteered on Comcast Cares Day.
To date, the Comcast Foundation has awarded more than $14 million in grants to partner organizations to match the efforts of volunteers on Comcast Cares Day.
