COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Approximately 150 local volunteers will work on improvement and beautification projects at Hillside Community Center on Saturday (May 4) as part of Comcast Cares Day, a Comcast NBCUniversal initiative to help strengthen and support the communities where its customers and employees live and work. Volunteers will prepare Hillside’s raised community gardens, plant flowers outside the center and paint the gym and pavilion.

The event will begin at 9 a.m. with formal remarks from Mayor John Suthers and David L. Cohen, Comcast Corporation Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer. In addition, a grant will be presented to Olympic City USA by Rich Jennings, Comcast Corporation’s senior vice president of the Mountain West Region. Additional details about the grant will be provided at the event.

U.S. Olympic gold medalists in ice hockey and Comcast Ambassadors Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando will also help kick off activities at Hillside, one of four community centers in Colorado Springs.

Open to the public, interested volunteers should register to attend by emailing Donna Nelson at donna.nelson@coloradosprings.gov. Limited volunteer positions remain.

This event is also part of the 4th annual Great American Cleanup Pikes Peak Partners, a community effort between the City of Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Keep Colorado Springs Beautiful, Colorado Springs Utilities, City of Fountain, City of Manitou Springs, and the Town of Monument. Approximately 1,000 volunteers at 20 locations throughout the Pikes Peak region participated in Great American Cleanup events on April 27, cleaning parks, trails and waterways.
