Comcast Presents $10,000 Grant to Light of Life Rescue Mission in Pittsburgh

Comcast recently presented a $10,000 grant to Light of Life Rescue Mission in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in support of their focus on transforming the lives of those experiencing homelessness. This grant will enable Light of Light to serve more than 3,500 meals locally as part of the continuation of the organization’s mission.

The grant was announced at an event through Team UP, Comcast’s always-on, 365-days-a-year national employee volunteer program, where Comcast teammates joined Light of Life, as well as the Sportsman Channel, to prepare and provide meals for 80 guests as part of the Hunt.Fish.Feed. program. Launched in 2007 by the Sportsman Channel, Hunt.Fish.Feed. continues to raise awareness of the ongoing hunger crisis in the United States.

“At Light of Life, hope starts with the meal… healing starts with the meal. And one of the important ways we’re able to serve is through community partnerships,” said Light of Life Recue Mission’s Executive Director Reverend Jerrel T. Gillam. “And today we got to meet some new friends at Comcast.”

“Volunteerism is a key part of Comcast’s culture and we’re proud to partner with the Light of Life Rescue Mission to make a positive impact in the Pittsburgh area,” said Ricky Frazier Jr., Senior Vice President, Comcast’s Keystone Region, which is based in Pennsylvania. “The success of programs like these are due to strong partnerships and the passion we share collectively for giving back to our community.”

Light of Life Rescue Mission is located in the heart of Allegheny County, where Comcast serves more than 120 municipalities and has more than 35 Lift Zones, providing free WiFi service to help community centers promote digital learning as part of Project UP, Comcast’s $1 billion commitment to advance digital equity through programs and community partnerships that connect people to the Internet, advance economic mobility and open doors for the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, storytellers and creators.
