FARMINGTON -- More than 3,000 volunteers are expected to participate in Comcast Cares Day along the Wasatch Front on Saturday.
The communitywide day of service is to take place from 8 a.m. to noon.
More than 3,000 individuals, consisting of community volunteers, Comcast employees and their families, will provide service at 12 locations up and down the Wasatch Front -- including a project in Forbush Park at 100 S. Main St. in Farmington, said Ray Child, an event organizer.
This is the company's seventh annual Comcast Cares Day in Utah.
More than 500 volunteers will participate in various projects around Farmington, including at Forbush Park, Woodland Park, South Park, the 600 North tunnel, Davis Creek Trail and Legacy Trail, Child said.
Projects in the area include landscaping at Woodland and South parks, painting at the 600 North tunnel, cleanup at Davis Creek and Legacy Trail and landscape work at other areas in the city, he said.
Volunteers also will be working to improve the grounds around Golden Hours Senior Center in Ogden and the Logan City parks and trails.
At the same time across the country, more than 67,000 Comcast and community volunteers will participate in the day of service, one of the largest single days of corporate volunteer efforts in the country.
The Comcast volunteer teams will partner with 12 area schools, cities, Utah Lake State Park and Utah Food Bank for the day of service, Child said.
Volunteers will also complete projects at West High and Meadowlark Elementary schools in Salt Lake City; West Lake Junior High School in West Valley City; Copper Hills High School in West Jordan; Midvale Middle School in Midvale; and South Salt Lake City parks and community areas.
