Comcast volunteers help Paradise High School seniors graduate for the first ceremony since the devastating Camp Fire.
By Philip Arndt
On Nov. 8, 2018, the town of Paradise witnessed the most destructive and devastating wildfire in California history. The lives of Paradise residents were changed forever when the Camp Fire decimated most of the town, destroying nearly 14,000 homes and numerous businesses and burning more than 150,000 acres.
Although much of the town was destroyed by the fire, a few structures remained, including Paradise High School. It became a symbol of the community – something the town needed, a marker in the sand that Paradise was here to stay.
In recent weeks, Comcast NBCUniversal and Sky employees gathered their friends, family members, nonprofit partners, and community leaders to participate in Comcast Cares Day 2019, one of the largest corporate days of service globally, and a celebration of our company’s year-round dedication to giving back.
April 22 is Earth Day, a time when we join the global celebration of preserving our environment. At Comcast NBCUniversal that celebration continues throughout the year with our commitment to Sustainability.
