As part of Comcast's ongoing commitment to the communities it serves, the company's Northern Division has collected and delivered more than 4,000 books to nine different Boys & Girls Clubs in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Connecticut. The books were personally donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lowell by Chelmsford-based Comcast employees as part of a region-wide book drive effort held over the last month. Approximately 400 books and $500 in school supplies were donated to the Lowell Boys & Girls Club. In addition, different company readers visited the Lowell club each Friday for the last several weeks to read with the youngsters, culminating in a final visit by former Celtics player JoJo White.
