Comcast: Celebrating Our Millionth Volunteer
Kyeshia Bates, a Comcast employee for seven years, works on the fulfillment team just outside of Detroit.
On Saturday, April 21, Comcast NBCUniversal celebrated its 17th Comcast Cares Day — and surpassed its millionth volunteer since this company tradition began in 2001. Giving back to the communities where we live and work is at the core of Comcast NBCUniversal's culture, and Comcast Cares Day is the company's way of recognizing its employees' commitment to improving communities each and every day.
To mark this major milestone, Comcast tracked down its one millionth volunteer — and her name is Kyeshia Bates, a Comcast employee for seven years who works on the fulfillment team just outside of Detroit.
Kyeshia had signed up to spend her Comcast Cares Day at Michigan's largest LGBTQ community center, named Affirmations, where about 50 volunteers cleaned the facility and spruced up the surrounding grounds.
To her surprise, she was met there by David L. Cohen, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer for Comcast Corporation. During a brief morning ceremony, David announced a gift of $25,000 would be provided to Affirmations in her honor from the Comcast Foundation. He also presented Kyeshia with an all-expenses paid trip for four to Universal Studios in Los Angeles for a long weekend, and a certificate to commemorate her recognition as the one millionth volunteer.
Kyeshia represents so many of the more than 100,000 employees, their friends and families, and our nonprofit partners who participate in Comcast Cares Day every year and are committed to making change happen in their communities.
"A million volunteers – that's something you can pause for a second and say 'wow we've really done something as a company, to bring a million volunteers out into the community,'" Cohen said.
