Local employees and volunteers help clean up parks for Comcast Cares Day
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Volunteers came together Saturday to give back to the community they work in by cleaning it up.
Local Comcast employees, as well as some family and friends, helped clean up Washington Park Community Center this morning as a park of national Comcast Cares Day.
Along with the Rockford Park District, about 40 volunteers picked up trash, planted trees, and put mulch near the sidewalks, all to make sure the park was a clean, safe place for children to enjoy.
"It's always nice to help give back to the community that you're working in, to kind of let them know that hey we're out there not only to service your cable needs but to help out and rebuild the community, as well," said Robert Merrill, a local Comcast employee.
