Comcast held its 8th annual Comcast Cares Day on Saturday — sending more than 50,000 employees out for more than 500 service projects to log more than 300,000 volunteer hours in what they bill as perhaps the largest single day of corporate service  in the world, according to a company press release.
The company’s blog puts that total at *poof* more than 60,000, which may or may not be nonsense, but it does a fine job of chronicling some of the good works Comcast has involved itself in this year, like servicing public green space, helping at food pantries and other wholesome goodness that doesn’t cost too much but is sweet.
For all of those who like the redeemable parts of corporate USA, check after the jump.
From its headquarters in Philadelphia to Colorado and New Mexico, Comcast folks got down with good deeds.
Below watch Comcast employees and Mayor Michael Nutter working at Locke Elementary in the Haddington neighborhood of West Philadelphia.
