Comcast delivers gift to TradeWinds

As part of Comcast Festival Fleet program, Greg Gomolka, Corporate Affairs Manager and Comcast Technicians, Chad Coplen and Ron Newton delivered a new big screen television to TradeWinds Services. As a Community Partner, TradeWinds was nominated and selected to receive this gift. Lisa Tatina, Director of Development and Marketing and Jon Gold, CEO of TradeWinds thanked the Comcast team for their generous donation that will help with staff training workshops. The Comcast Festival Fleet program selects different communities for this program each year. Comcast team members live and work in their local community, to show their gratitude they enjoy giving back to local customers. The Festival Fleet program empowers Comcast technicians to do more than just deliver Comcast products and services. They get to meet customers and families in their homes. During the holiday season, the technicians nominate customers who had made a strong impression during past home service calls and those who they thought were deserving of a special holiday gift. In December, the technicians deliver a surprise to selected customers with a gift of a brand new television, iPad, or gift card. The reaction from our customers is touching and so appreciative, and our technicians love every minute of it. TradeWinds is honored to be the recipient of this wonderful donation.
