HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - A nonprofit aimed at helping Huntsville's young women got a touch up from over a hundred Comcast Cares volunteers Saturday.

The cable and internet provider carried out ten community enhancement projects across the state for Comcast Cares Day.

In Huntsville, that meant the volunteers showed up at Girls Inc, to do a little painting, organizing, and general spring cleaning.

"It's absolutely overwhelming," said center manager Sarah Guarin. "I can't tell you how blessed we feel and how fortunate we feel when they started calling a few months ago asking if they could come and do this today."

Girls Inc is a nonprofit that provides gender specific life skills to promote healthy life choices, ranging from wellness to economic literacy to career preparedness.

"I had no idea what Comcast Cares Day was," said Guarin. "Working in a non profit, when people call and say they want to come and do things for you, it's always appreciated, but you never really know the extent to which they're wanting to do something."

"When I realized the scale, the magnitude of what they were wanting to do I was just blown away. But to actually come in and be a part of it, I can't even describe it. It's amazing."
