KeyBank volunteers in Dunkirk for Make the Difference Day
On June 7, KeyBank hosted its 31th annual Neighbors Make the Difference Day. From 1-5 p.m., more than 300 teammates in Western New York spent time volunteering with community organizations and service projects in the region. They joined 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.
In Dunkirk, KeyBank members volunteered with United Way of Northern Chautauqua County on Washington Avenue.
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.
“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.”
