Key Equipment Finance employees gave their time and energy Wednesday to help nine local community organizations with various tasks ranging from painting and yard work to making blankets for children.
The efforts were part of the 28th annual Neighbors Make the Difference Day. Almost 100 Key Equipment Finance employees participated in KeyCorp's national day of volunteering, joining nearly 7,000 KeyBank employees nationwide in receiving paid time off to volunteer at more than 850 projects in the neighborhoods where they live and work.
“Key Equipment Finance employees stepped up once again for this special annual event to assist these important organizations in our community,” said Adam Warner, president, Key Equipment Finance. “Many carry this culture of community involvement forward throughout the year by continuing to give back in various ways.”
Participating local organizations included Birds of Prey, Butterfly Pavilion, Children's Hospital Colorado, City of Westminster, Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center, Firefly Autism, FISH Community Food Bank, Humane Society of Boulder Valley and the Town of Superior, where Key Equipment Finance is based.
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.
