PARADISE, Calif. - Hundreds of volunteers came together for the Comcast Cares event in Paradise. They came to the high school to clean it up so that students could have their graduation there this year, but provided more than just a beautification of the school grounds.

On Comcast Cares Day, employees and their families and friends come together to make a difference. This year more than 500 volunteers came to Paradise High School to make their graduation day possible. The grounds of the school were damaged by the Camp Fire in November. Since then students have been going to school in Chico instead of Paradise.

Paradise High School's principal, Loren Lighthall, said, "It's really important for the seniors to graduate here because their parents graduated here, their grandparents graduated from here... their friends did last year."

Lighthall said students ask him every day if the field will be ready for their graduation. He said it's "super important to them."

There are 238 seniors expected to graduate this year.

Senior Class President, Garrett Malcolm, said that it means a lot to the students to be able to graduate at their own stadium in their own town.

Comcast Regional Senior Vice President, John Gauder, announced that his company is donating a laptop computer to each graduating senior from Paradise. He said it was something they felt would create a lasting memory and ensure success in college and future careers.

He called it a "lasting memory."

Malcolm said he was not going to take the gift from Comcast for granted. He said he would be using his laptop for his studies.

The students will have their graduation on the Paradise High School campus on June 6, 2019.
