    NBC 6 and Telemundo 51 teamed up with Comcast and NBCUniversal employees for the annual Comcast Cares Day Saturday.

    Employees worked side-by-side with community volunteers on projects in Miami-Dade and Broward.

    One project had volunteers filling teacher's supply boxes with pencils and hygiene products.

    "It's so important because a lot of teacher spend their own personal money making sure their students have supplies they need, so this way we are able to give them those supplies," said Elyssa Linares.

    The Miami-Dade event also included paint in the park, support our veterans and tools for schools projects at Athalie Range Park.

    "I'm here volunteering and I'm going to be painting a mural on the school to make it look beautiful," said Comcast volunteer Matthew Nickerson.

    City of Miami Annette Eisenberg Community Center and its surrounding park in Little Haiti were transformed with some color.

    "We're bringing families together to make sure that the community here is supported and looks great and that students want to come here to this local park," Michelle Vidal said.

    Hundreds of volunteers also helped beautify and clean the park.

    This annual day of service is taking part all across the country and the world by Comcast employees.

    "I'm glad to make other kids communities amazing," Nickerson said.

    In Broward, volunteers gave Margate STEM Middle School a makeover for the 1,000 students and educators who spend each weekday there.

    More than 100,000 employees around the world volunteered - with more than 10,000 Comcasters taking part in over 100 projects across Florida.
