 Employees from Comcast offices in the Philadelphia area will spend Friday, April 20 at the Battleship — not to take a tour, but rather to volunteer to paint, chip, clean, landscape, and more on and around the ship.
 Last year, several hundred Comcast employees helped the Battleship with several projects, including moving the mooring lines off the pier.
