Alexander Adaire Elementary was one of several Philadelphia schools to get spruced up on Saturday, April 21, as part of Comcast Cares Day.

The 17th annual event saw volunteers from Comcast NBCUniversal as well as their friends, families, community members, and leaders work together on 30 projects, 10 of them in Philadelphia schools: Adaire, Bache-Martin Elementary, Clarke School for Hearing & Speech, Constitution High School, Horatio Hackett Elementary, Laura Wheeler Waring Elementary, Logan Elementary, Robert Morris Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, and Samuel Gompers Elementary.

“As we celebrate our 17th annual Comcast Cares Day, we are delighted to partner year after year with the School District of Philadelphia to give back in our hometown,” said Comcast vice president of community impact Bob Smith. “It’s really inspiring how we can drive positive change when our employees, their family and friends, and our community partners rally together to make a lasting difference in our communities. I am very thankful for the participants who help to make this effort a success today and throughout the year.”
