  • Butterfly Pavilion
  • Children's Hospital
  • City of Westminster
  • Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center

  • Sister Carmen Community Center

The employees were busy at the various locations with activities including painting, planting, weeding, sorting clothing and food donations and making blankets

"At KeyBank, we invest in education, the workforce and service projects that help neighborhoods prosper," said Margot Copeland, CEO and Chairman of the KeyBank Foundation. "Neighbors Make the Difference Day allows our employees the opportunity to directly and visibly demonstrate their dedication to the neighborhoods where we live and work."

Launched in 1991 by a group of KeyBank employees in Alaska who volunteered for service projects, Neighbors Make the Difference Day was extended throughout KeyBank and today is a hallmark program and leading corporate volunteerism effort in America.

"Every year, we are proud to watch the positive change created by our employees' volunteerism," said Copeland. "Neighbors Make the Difference Day is part of our corporate DNA. It extends our efforts to work with experienced organizations that stabilize neighborhoods for individuals and families, provide access to financial resources and increase opportunities for local growth."
