Comcast will join the Wilmington community on Saturday April 22nd, with over 150 volunteers at the Clarence Fraim Boys & Girls Club to participate in a Comcast Cares Day event.


Comcast Cares Day is the largest single-day corporate volunteer event in the country.  Last year 930 projects were completed across the country, two of which took place at Boys & Girls Clubs in Delaware.


“Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware is honored to again be chosen by Comcast to receive such a tremendous give back to the community” said CEO George Krupanski.  This year the Clarence Fraim Club is the chosen site.  The Club, located on Wilmington’s West side sits on parkland previously owned by the City of Wilmington.  Since opening its doors in 1970, the Club has served more than 40,000 youth.  Club facilities include; a gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, learning centers, a computer lab, art room and a large outdoor playground.   The Club offers before, after and out of school childcare, Summer programming, Teen programs and several athletic programs and leagues.


Comcast Cares volunteers will be painting, cleaning, and updating the outside areas just in time for Summer Fun Club.   The volunteers are Comcast employees, their families, Boys & Girls Club staff and teens, and members of the local community.


“We are very grateful to Comcast for choosing us as a beneficiary.   Without them many of these projects would go uncompleted” stated Rachel Kane, Executive Director of the Clarence Fraim Boys & Girls Club.  “Comcast as a business has been very good to the organization.  Comcast Cares Day is just another way Comcast continues to support our efforts for changing and saving kids lives in Delaware”, Kane went on to say.
