Backpacks for a Bright Future
Comcast Spotlight is committed to improving its communities and making a positive impact in the markets it serves. For the 16 million kids who come from families struggling with extreme poverty, school supplies can make all the difference in the world to their future success. The kids helped today may be future leaders of tomorrow.
Ensuring Every Child Is Prepared
Comcast Spotlight teamed up with Kids In Need Foundation to ensure every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom by providing free school supplies to students most in need. Giving back to the communities it serves is part of the company’s DNA.
In 2019, Comcast Spotlight distributed backpacks to elementary school students in six markets: Jersey City, NJ; Miami, FL; Houston, TX; Seattle, WA; Detroit, MI; and Richmond, VA. Inside each backpack were school supplies (including notebooks, markers, and pens) as well as a personalized note from a Comcast Spotlight employee.
