PORTLAND, Ore.–Comcast is helping communities throughout Oregon get into the holiday spirit by donating funds, equipment and staff. Whether it’s using their bucket trucks to install decorations along McMinnville’s city streets, or underwriting Salem’s Christmas tree lighting at Riverfront Park Pavilion, Comcast wants to help bring holiday joy to their customers and employees.
“We are proud to help our communities celebrate the holidays,” said Rodrigo Lopez, Comcast’s regional Vice President for Oregon and SW Washington. “These events are a great way to bring us all together to reflect on the year that’s ending and look forward to the coming new year.”
Comcast is also celebrating a record year of $1.2 million in charitable contribution in Oregon and thousands of hours of service work by its employees. Comcast has 1,914 employees who live and work in communities throughout the state. While there are many opportunities to volunteer throughout the year, Christmas time is special for some.
“I love it,” said Chuck Dearborn, Network Technician for Comcast in McMinnville. “I get to bring holiday cheer to an entire community.” Dearborn has been installing holiday lights in McMinnville for “a long, long time.”
Comcast also supports the Keizer Holiday Light Parade and Christmas tree lightings in Tualitin and West Linn.
