On Saturday morning, about 100 volunteers, all employees of the Comcast corporation, descended on the campus of Salem Animal Rescue League (SARL) for a full day of projects despite the rainy forecast.
Several weeks earlier, volunteers stopped by the shelter to assess its greatest need.
Bettencourt said the volunteers had completely stripped the structure of its old, faded paint earlier that morning.
"We take a great deal of pride in our facility, but SARL wouldn't be able to do it all without the support of organizations like Comcast," Bettencourt said.
This is the company's 13th season offering the program, though it was SARL's first time benefitting from services offered.
"We're proud once again to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs and other nonprofit organizations to improve our community during our 13th Comcast Cares Day," said Steve Hackley, Comcast Senior Vice President of the Greater Boston Region, which includes New Hampshire. "The hard work of the 1,500 New Hampshire volunteers who donated their time to help make such a big difference in the lives of others is inspiring."
