ROSELLE – Volunteers are being sought to join Mayor Jamel Holley, Comcast employees and their families and friends, and other Roselle residents to participate in the a community clean-up project as part of Comcast Cares Day on Saturday, April 21.
Many projects are planned, including the beautification of the Sylvester Land Field/Sports Complex, as well as planting, fence repair and general clean-up at the Community Garden at Amalfe Community Center.
“This event is another part of our year-round effort to make Roselle beautiful and an even better place to live,” the mayor said. “This is a perfect example of how public-private partnerships can make a difference for improving the community.”
Holley encouraged all residents of Roselle to come help clean up the town. He noted the borough’s Department of Public Works and Department of Recreation will be playing key roles.
Comcast Cares Day has grown into one of the largest single-day corporate volunteer efforts in the country. Over the past 10 Comcast Cares Days, more than 350,000 Comcast employees and their families and friends have contributed more than 2.1 million hours of service at nearly 4,000 project sites. The Comcast Foundation also has given out more than $10.5 million in Comcast Cares Day grants over that period. This year, Comcast is expecting to have approximately 67,000 volunteers at an anticipated 670 projects, and to surpass 2.5 million hours served on Comcast Cares Day. Holley said Roselle is pleased to serve as a partner.
