Comcast Teams UP in Washington for Spring Service Week

Comcast employees spent the past week rolling up their sleeves in several locations in Washington volunteering as part of the region’s Spring Service Week. Part of Comcast’s Team UP national employee volunteer program, hundreds of Comcast employees volunteered at non-profits in Seattle, Spokane, and Tacoma throughout the week.


Hundreds of Comcast employees made their way to El Centro de la Raza and took part in beautification efforts on the organization’s campus in Beacon Hill. Comcast employees were joined by community volunteers and the group went to work – cleaning, painting, and sprucing up the historic site.

The effort was part of Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell’s One Seattle Day of Service. One Seattle Day of Service is a citywide day of volunteerism to give back and take action to improve the city. Each year, a diverse group of public, private and non-profit and community organizations provide a wide array of services, helping their neighbors.

El Centro de la Raza is the largest Latino-serving nonprofit in Washington State and offers affordable housing, bilingual childcare, a food bank, digital literacy programs, workforce development, and social services for diverse communities across Puget Sound. Tens of thousands of people benefit from its programs and services annually.

Comcast and El Centro de la Raza have partnered for several years now, which includes Comcast employees volunteering at El Centro last year for One Seattle Day of Service.  

Comcast volunteers were joined by local elected officials this year, including Seattle Councilmember (District 8) Tanya Woo, City of Seattle Director of External Affairs Pedro Gomez, and Legislative Assistant for The Office of State Senator Rebecca Saldaña, Raman Khanna.


Dozens of Comcast employee volunteers pitched in at Family Promise of Spokane headquarters, bringing landscaping to life through new soil, weed blocker, plants, shrubs, edging trimming, beauty bark plus so much more. The low-maintenance exterior will allow the staff of Family Promise to focus on the critical work of providing resources, guidance and upskilling to the 1,100+ families they serve each year.

Since 2018, Comcast has partnered with Family Promise of Spokane through charitable giving, volunteerism, activating Lift Zones in five housing locations and providing funding to enhance the technology and digital skills programming in the Life Skills Classroom. This partnership and support have contributed to the overall success rate of families who participate in Family Promise of Spokane’s
program, of which 95% of homeless families that engage in their 2-year program, remain stably housed.

Comcast employees volunteered at the Tacoma Rescue Mission as part of Hunt.Fish.Feed., a unique outreach program created by Sportsman Channel, which taps into an underutilized food source – game meat and fish – to feed those struggling with hunger across America. Sportsman Channel and its partners are on a mission to help end hunger, promoting an alternative solution with the help of local media outlets in the cities they serve.
