KeyBank celebrated its national Neighbors Make The Difference Day earlier this month on June 13. More than 140 Connecticut and Western Massachusetts market employees joined their KeyBank teammates across the nation in leaving their offices to volunteer for local nonprofits.

Neighbors Make the Difference Day is one of KeyBank’s most visible community volunteer initiatives. The company-wide day of service is a long-standing annual event that demonstrates KeyBank’s commitment to helping its neighbors and communities thrive. Nationally, KeyBank closed the majority of its  branches at noontime to enable an estimated 4,000 teammates to complete more than  500 projects with nonprofits amounting to over 16,000 community service hours in a single day.
