WATCH | Giving Back Becomes Full-Circle Moment for Houston Volunteers

An employee with Comcast smiles as he helps packs boxes at the Houston Food Bank.

More than 50 volunteers with Comcast Texas’s Team UP recently visited the Houston Food Bank’s warehouse on the city’s eastside to sort and pack food into hundreds of boxes. The boxes will eventually make their way into the homes of families across southeast Texas. For two volunteers, it meant something emotionally special, giving back became a full-circle moment.

“We did not have running water when I grew up. Had it not been for free lunch at school, we probably would’ve gone hungry. Whatever we had, we’d share.”

According to the Houston Food Bank, since 2014, Comcast’s impact has yielded more than 1.2 million meals being served to those in need. Team UP is Comcast’s employee volunteer program. It is an always-on, 365-days-a-year effort that brings Comcast teams together and provides opportunities for everyone to get more involved in their local communities.
