On June 7, KeyBank employees in Buffalo will volunteer with 38 community organizations and projects
On Tuesday, June 7, KeyBank will host its 31st annual “Neighbors Make the Difference Day.” From 1-5 p.m., teammates in Buffalo will spend time volunteering with community organizations and service projects in the region. They’ll join thousands of KeyBank teammates nationwide in receiving paid time off to volunteer at more than 38 projects in the neighborhoods where they live and work.
Many of the bank’s branches will close at noon on June 7 to accommodate teammates who are volunteering; customers will have access to ATMs, as well as online and mobile banking.
“Neighbors Make the Difference Day” launched in 1991, with a group of KeyBank employees in Alaska who volunteered for service projects. By 1993, KeyBank extended the concept to many of the communities it served, making it an official day of employee volunteerism. Now, “Neighbors Make the Difference Day” is described as “a hallmark program and leading corporate volunteerism effort in America, showcasing KeyBank’s commitment to communities.”
“All of us at KeyBank take great pride in working in, living in and serving our communities,” said Michael McMahon, KeyBank Buffalo market president and commercial sales leader. “We are proud to carry on the tradition of coming together as one to dedicate our time and talent, brighten lives and help transform our community in a meaningful way.”
