7,000 in Philly area expected to show up for Comcast's volunteer day Sat.

Comcast says that thousands of its employees and their family members will paint and spruce up public schools and sweep the Jersey Shore for litter as part of its volunteer day on Saturday.

About 7,000 volunteers are expected to participate throughout the Philadelphia area in what the company calls "Comcast Cares Day." The event will run between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m., rain or shine. More than 100,000 volunteers could show up to work on Comcast and NBCUniversal projects nationwide.

Among the Philadelphia-area spruce-up projects are those at Roxborough High School, Bartram's Gardens, and the Camden parks.

The public can participate and register here for projects.
