Chicago – May 6, 2019
Total Living Network (TLN) announced that it partnered with Comcast at Pacific Garden Mission in the 18th annual Comcast Cares Day. Comcast Cares Day is one of the largest corporate commitments to volunteerism and service in America and TLN Chicago has been a partner every year since its inception. TLN shares Comcast NBCUniversal’s value of giving back to the communities we serve.
TLN was delighted to be a Co-Lead along with Comcast’s Black Employee Network for the Pacific Garden Mission project. Nearly 100 volunteers gathered at PGM to garden, wash windows, sanitize beds and furniture, sort donated clothing and pantry items and more.
Michael Ortman from Comcast’s corporate office in Philadelphia said, “This project hit close to home. We lost our daughter to a drug overdose about a year and a half ago, and when I saw what Chicago’s Black Employee Network was doing, I wanted to be here.”
Terry Cunningham from Pacific Garden Mission said, “It’s wonderful when we come together. Many hands make for light work, and we’re appreciative and grateful to Comcast and TLN.”
Pacific Garden Mission is Chicago’s oldest rescue mission founded in 1877. The Total Living Network partners with the organization on a weekly series “Pacific Garden Mission” which airs on TLN Chicago on Saturdays @ 7:30p.
