Neighbors first

Along with the big things we do, we’ve found small ways to support our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. We started #KeyBankAssists by teaming up with sports figures from some of our communities to support small businesses, families and essential workers. We saw that these small things eased their stress and brought some happiness, so we’re keeping it up.

Beginning July 6, we’ll be joining with renowned chef Robert Irvine to give $25,000 to the charity of his choice, along with special gifts for local restaurants, charities and families.

Here’s the plan:

  • We’ll give Robert Irvine $25,000 to donate to the charity of his choice.
  • Each local chef influencer will be given $5,000 for their favorite local charity.
  • Every day for five days, KeyBank will buy $50 gift cards for a different local restaurant and give them as surprise gifts with takeout orders.
  • Each day, we’ll also make a donation to a local food bank in the same amount as the day’s gift card total.

It all begins July 6, and you can follow along on Social media at #KeyBankAssists.
