Comcast to Mark LGBT History Month

Comcast heads to the Mazzoni Center this week

Last spring volunteers with Comcast visited the Mazzoni Center for the official Comcast Cares Day. This week (Oct. 10) volunteers with OUT@Comcast, the company’s LGBT employee group, will present the LGBT health center with a $1,330 grant from the Comcast Foundation, along with five netbooks to help connect clients to important health information and human services.

This will be the second time the company has helped support Mazzoni’s mission at the 3,500-square-foot Washington West Project. Last year, more than 70 volunteers from Comcast and NBC helped with renovation projects at the facility. And this week, they’ll present a symbolic check totaling $18,257 in grants, donations, materials and volunteer hours.

Mazzoni Center was selected as a Comcast Cares Day project site by OUT@Comcast – Mazzoni’s Executive Director Nurit Shein will be speaking, along with Klay Fennell and Frank Marchese, are expected to speak at the event.
