Many of the bank’s branches will close at noon on June 13 to accommodate teammates who are volunteering. Customers will have access to ATMs, as well as online and mobile banking.

A press release stated, “ ‘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 a hallmark program and leading corporate volunteerism effort in America, showcasing KeyBank’s commitment to communities.”

KeyBank Buffalo Market President Michael McMahon said, “ ‘Neighbors Make the Difference Day’ is an event our KeyBank teammates look forward to each year as we all take great pride in working in, living in and serving Buffalo and Western New York, home to our northeast regional headquarters. This tradition is another way that KeyBank invests in Buffalo by dedicating our collective time and talent to brighten lives and help transform our community in a meaningful way.”
