Mayor and Suzi Bach Join Comcast for Park Cleanup
On Saturday, April 21, 2012 Mayor and Suzi Bach will join community and Comcast Cares Day volunteers for another Park Clean-up Event as a Spirit of the Springs initiative. Volunteers will meet at 9:45 am in the parking lot near Mesa and Glen Avenue near Colorado College.
Comcast has dedicated Comcast Cares Day as an annual single-day of service with more than 67,000 volunteers participating across the country and more than 4,000 volunteers participating in the state of Colorado.
“We know citizens love their city. We hope park cleanups will provide an organized way to make a difference,” said Donna Nelson, event organizer and the City’s Economic Vitality and Innovation Specialist.
“We’re so honored to partner with Mayor and Suzi Bach on the Spirit of the Springs project and with all of the Colorado nonprofits in southern Colorado to improve our great state during the 11th Comcast Cares Day,” said Mike Valentin, Area Vice President for Comcast in Southern Colorado. “I’m grateful to the hundreds of community and Comcast volunteers who will be donating their time to help beautify parks in Colorado Springs.”
Last month at the XFINITY Store opening in Colorado Springs, Donna Nelson accepted a $2,500 donation from Comcast on behalf of the City. The donation contributed to the purchase of supplies and further park enhancements for the Spirit of the Springs service day project and Comcast Cares Day, when Comcast volunteers work alongside community volunteers to beautify parks in Colorado Springs.
