Celebrating 10 Years of Comcast NBCUniversal’s Beyond School Walls

Article

In 2008, eight-year-old Alize Delgado had spent almost no time outside of his North Philadelphia neighborhood.

The Lasting Impact of Comcast Cares Day in Santa Rosa

Like so many school districts around the country, it’s back-to-school time here in Santa Rosa, Calif. I look forward to this week every year, the excited buzz of students filling the halls and classrooms and the celebration of a new school year. But this year is a little different. With more than 800 families in our district displaced as a result of last October’s wildfires, we just won’t know until those school doors open how many students will be back this year. Many families spent the summer evaluating if they will stay in Santa Rosa and rebuild, or move.

Comcast Cares Day Service by – and for – Those Who Serve

Blog

“It takes an entire community to help a veteran heal.”

Those words drive the mission of the Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training (MCVET), an organization that provides housing and comprehensive services to homeless veterans and to help them rejoin their communities. While the center is located in Baltimore, veterans come from all over the country to find shelter there — and a path to success in their civilian lives.

Taking Command: Veteran Entrepreneurs Lead a Wave of Innovation

Blog

From their time in the Galang Refugee Camp in Indonesia, siblings John and Roy Doan shared everything. Once in the United States, Roy took care of his younger brother. He taught John how to ride a bike and drive a car. John looked up to Roy.

In their early 30s their roles reversed. Roy was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and dementia. Roy now lives in a supportive group home and has a limited ability to work.

Voices Carry: The Hidden Heroes of the Civil Rights Movement

Blog

On September 15, 1963, four Ku Klux Klansmen planted 15 sticks of dynamite and a timing device in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. Four African-American girls between the ages of 11 and 14 were killed in the blast. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called it “one of the most vicious and tragic crimes ever perpetrated against humanity.”

Sarah Collins Rudolph, sister of victim Addie May Collins, was there too. Yet even though Rudolph was part of one of the watershed moments in civil rights history, her story has seldom been told.
