Xfinity is giving some of its military community employees a special salute during today’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
The company’s traditional logo, typically found on the windshields of each race car, will have the names of employees serving on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Comcast is proud of its employees nationwide that are coming together to support our customers and communities during this national crisis,” said Matt Lederer, Comcast Vice President of Brand Partnerships & Activation in a release.
Honorees include Deeva Williams, a recently activated National Guard soldier serving at mobile food banks in Tacoma, Washington, and Stephen Rolston, whose National Guard unit is directly assisting the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
“Our company is proud of its military community employees, both veterans and those serving today in the National Guard and Reserve who are on the frontlines of the fight against the pandemic,” said retired Brig. Gen. Carol Eggert, senior vice president of Military and Veterans Affairs At Comcast NBCUniversal.
Approximately 50,000 National Guard and reserve members have been mobilized nationally in response to the pandemic. More than 2,000 Comcast NBCUniversal employees serve in the Guard and Reserve.
