Comcast has been a proud sponsor of the Community Services League (CSL), located in Independence, Missouri for nearly a decade. Earlier this week, Comcast donated $2,500 to the CSL for their annual Christmas Store. Each year hundreds of families in the Independence, Blue Springs, Oak Grove, Grain Valley and Buckner communities reach out to CSL for a little something to put under the tree on Christmas morning. Parents or legal guardians “shop” for one toy or gift for each child, age 18 and under. They choose from toys and gifts that have been donated to CSL. Families also receive underwear, hats, gloves, scarves, socks, and a Holiday Food Box filled with the makings for a Christmas dinner and a turkey or ham.
