I’m proud to work for an organization that advocates to enhance the dignity, expand the opportunities, and protect the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. We serve 500 people in the Eugene and Springfield areas of Oregon, and support them in any way we can. But we cannot do this work alone to make the impact we must make to help people live their fullest lives.

PHILADELPHIA, April 20, 2017 /3BL Media/ - On Saturday, April 22nd, more than 100,000 Comcast NBCUniversal employees, and their families and friends, and community partners will participate in the 16th annual Comcast Cares Day, the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort and a culmination of the company’s year-round commitment to community service.
This Saturday, April 22nd, marks the 16th annual Comcast Cares Day, where more than 100,000 volunteers in 21 countries will leave a lasting impact in the communities where they live and work. They’ll give back side-by-side with colleagues, community partners, family, and friends in the day to celebrate Comcast NBCUniversal’s year-round commitment to make a difference.
