President Stephen Jordan to volunteer for Comcast Cares Days, asks for 450 Metro students, alums, employees to join him

Dear Colleagues,

Please join Ruthie and me in volunteering for Comcast Cares Day on Saturday, April 24. Metro State is privileged to be this year's signature Colorado nonprofit to benefit from the annual event — the largest one-day corporate volunteer effort in the country.

Hundreds of Comcast volunteers will assist with campus beautification and maintenance projects ranging from painting outdoor hand railings to inventorying library books. Comcast will also collect nonperishable food items with a goal of more than 45,000 pounds —enough to feed more than 30,000 individuals. Metro State's own food bank will be filled, along with many other community food pantries. Read more facts about Comcast Cares day below.

In honor of our upcoming 45th anniversary, my goal is to have 450 Metro State volunteers help support in this exciting effort. Our efforts on April 24 will improve the campus experience for everyone. Let's make this a kick-off for an annual service project that we can be proud of for the next 45 years.

Every volunteer receives free parking, breakfast, lunch, t-shirt and Metro State cap.

April 24 will be a great day to be a Roadrunner! Thank you in advance for your participation.


Stephen M. Jordan, Ph.D.
