“We’re proud to partner with the City of Everett and the Boys & Girls Clubs to improve our community during our 13th Comcast Cares Day,” said Len Rozek, senior vice president of the Comcast Washington Region “The hard work of the many hundreds volunteers who will be donating their time to help make such a big difference in the lives of others is inspiring.”

Meanwhile, Comcast’s Everett field office has adopted the Cascade Club of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County. More than 200 volunteers will help improve the Everett club with new paint, cleaned carpets, fresh landscaping and numerous other projects.
