On Tuesday June 13th, KeyBank hosted its 32nd annual Neighbors Make the Difference Day®. Throughout various times of the day, teammates in Idaho stepped away from the desks to spend time volunteering as a team with community organizations and service projects in the region. They joined thousands of KeyBank teammates nationwide in receiving paid time off to volunteer across the country in the neighborhoods where they live and work. It is estimated that more than 16,000 volunteer hours were spent in the community nationwide and more than 350 hours locally.
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.
“We all love our community and take pride in living in and supporting our neighbors,” said Scott Schlange, KeyBank’s Idaho Market President and Commercial Banking 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.”
