On Tuesday, KeyBank hosted its 32nd annual “Neighbors Make the Difference Day.” From 1-5 p.m., hundreds of teammates in Buffalo spent time volunteering with community organizations at more than 40 service projects in the region. They joined thousands of KeyBank teammates nationwide in receiving paid time off to volunteer at more than 500 projects in the neighborhoods where they live and work.

“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.

“ ‘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,” said Michael McMahon, KeyBank Buffalo market president. “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.”
