‘Comcast Cares’ cleanup day planned for Lime Bluff Park

By Staff | Apr 21, 2016

HUGHESVILLE On Saturday, April 30, local Comcast employees and their families, friends and community partners will “make change happen” as they volunteer with the East Lycooming Recreation Authority to improve Wolf Township as part of the 15th annual Comcast Cares Day.

Volunteers will be cleaning and landscaping at Lime Bluff Park, Elm Drive in Hughesville, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Comcast Cares Day, which takes place each April during National Volunteer Month, is a celebration of their year-round commitment to service and the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort in the country.

Activities will include light mulching, painting and general cleanup work. Help from community residents is encouraged to help prepare the park for the summer. The park is totally maintained by volunteers.

“We’re so proud to partner with Wolf Township and East Lycoming Recreation Authority to improve Lime Bluff Park during our 15th Comcast Cares Day,” added Jim Samaha, senior vice president of Comcast’s Keystone Region. “The hard work of the volunteers who will be donating their time to help make such a big difference in the lives of others is inspiring, and I am thankful to all of our participants who are helping to make Comcast Cares Day a success.”

The Comcast Foundation will also provide a grant to Lime Bluff Park on behalf of everyone who volunteers on Comcast Cares Day. To date, the Comcast Foundation has awarded more than $16 million in grants to local non-profit organizations who have partnered with them on Comcast Cares Day.

Bring the whole family. Children are counted as volunteers, so make it a family day at the park. Enjoy lunch and all participants get a free t-shirt.

The park is located just off Rt. 405 on Elm Drive in Hughesville.
