NBCUniversal

NBCUniversal kept its employee volunteering program, NBCUnites,
going strong amidst the pandemic. From March 2020 to May 2021, NBCU employees shifted to volunteering virtually to support their communities through video greetings, mentorship programs and more thanks to the company’s connection to local volunteer opportunities. During this period, over 8,000 employees engaged in over 260 projects, resulting in nearly 12,500 hours of virtual service.

Mediacom

Mediacom worked to spread the love in 2020 through donation commitments and by connecting more low-income neighborhoods to high-speed broadband. The company announced a plan in December 2020 to donate $100,000 to a network of community food banks and $10,000 to a shelter for survivors of interpersonal and sexual violence. Beginning in March 2020, Mediacom also doubled its efforts to help low-income families with K-12 students receive home internet service through its Connect2Compete program. It has provided affordable broadband services to more than 14,000 low-income families since the start of the pandemic.

ESPN

ESPN launched its #oneteam employee engagement campaign during the pandemic. The program used partnerships with Feeding America, the CDC and American Red Cross to feed families and run PSAs to keep communities up-to-date on COVID-19 guidance and resources. The company also launched a partnership with DoSomething.org to launch the #oneteam challenges, keeping kids active and giving them sports-themed activities. ESPN’s partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs allowed them to launch a Speaker Series designed to keep kids stay positive. The #oneteam campaign involved 50 separate projects that virtually allowed employees to give back to their communities.
