During the recent United Way "Day of Caring," M&T Bank showed its hometown pride by again having the largest representation of volunteers – approximately 450 employees across 21 job sites, representing nearly 14% of the total "Day of Caring" volunteer force. During the day's activities, Buffalo Bills legends Jim Kelly and Darryl Talley made guest appearances as a special “thank you” to M&T and other volunteer groups.
To meet with M&T volunteers, Kelly and Talley visited the African American Cultural Center and Dorothy J. Collier Community Center where they delivered pep talks, took photos, and chipped in on the work.
Throughout the day, volunteers helped with painting, cleaning, clearing overgrown lots and other general maintenance to revitalize these important community institutions.
Kelly and Talley also highlighted the "Huddle for 100" initiative, an effort to inspire football fans to volunteer 100 minutes of their time to strengthen their communities. The campaign celebrates the league's 100th season, and Bills fans are encouraged to get involved and share their experiences with the hashtag #BIllsHuddlefor100.
Wednesday, Aug. 21, marked the 27th annual "Day of Caring." More information about the initiative is available via the United Way.
