Comcast is a big winner in more ways than one
Posted on February 9th, 2013 by Beth
Comcast is one of Easter Seals newest national corporate partners, and we were thrilled to hear that readers of Careers & the Disabled are as impressed with the company as we are. The magazine just ranked Comcast ninth in the country on their annual “Top 50 Employers List,” and this is the fourth time Comcast has received this important recognition.
Our new partnership with Comcast Foundation has created a grant fund that makes it possible for Easter Seals to build on our long history of providing expertise and technology support for children and adults with disabilities. A blog post about the award on the Comcast corporate web site explains:
We’re working with Easter Seals to provide funding for their assistive technology efforts to help people with disabilities learn on a computer, have access to the Internet, get jobs through the use of technology and adapt technology to their specific needs in order to have what they need to lead a well-balanced life.
Fred Maahs, the Director of National Partnerships, Community Investment, and VP of Comcast Foundation is quoted in the Comcast blog post saying how rewarding our partnership is for him, both personally and professionally. “We’re literally changing lives and making the future brighter for countless individuals and communities across our footprint,” he said.
Thank you, Comcast, and … congratulations!
