“With our main offices located in the downtown area, it’s a natural that Comcast Little Rock supports the continued renaissance of this part of the city. Downtown Little Rock with its rich history and growing number of attractions should be a point of pride for all Central Arkansans.
Comcast Little Rock is proud to be a part of the downtown re-development process as well as an active member in all the communities we serve. In October, more than 100 Comcast employees volunteered to help rehabilitate Little Rock’s Billy Mitchell Boys and Girls Club as a part of Comcast Cares Day – an annual nationwide effort that involved 30,000 Comcast employees and their families donating 180,000 hours of service to 300 different community projects. The Comcast Cares program continues all year through community partnerships with City Year, Partnership for a Drug-Free America, United Way and Woodrock, Inc.
In addition to being involved in numerous community activities and events, Comcast Little Rock also helps educate viewers with year-round public affairs programming including 25 monthly community affairs programs, five-minute “Comcast Newsmakers” public affairs shows, and a Community Calendar of important events.
The Comcast Foundation – which has given more than $30 million to non-profit organizations since 1999 – strives to make communities stronger with a focus on literacy and learning programs, volunteerism projects and initiatives, scholarships to those who need them most, and community partnerships.
This focus on community involvement is expressed in Comcast’s mission: to empower communities and enrich lives. Comcast Little Rock’s community efforts include activities that will improve the areas where we live, work and play – a perfect definition of what downtown Little Rock has become. Of course, there’s always work to be done and improvements to be made – and you can count on Comcast Little Rock’s support every step of the way. After all, this is our community too.”
