KeyBank Commercial Digital team members volunteering at the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Center for Neighbors Make the Difference Day in 2021

Neighbors Make the Difference Day

Helping communities thrive.

Every year thousands of KeyBank teammates across the country contribute their time and talents to local nonprofit organizations to give back to their local communities for Key’s annual Neighbors Make the Difference Day®.

Communities thrive when volunteers unite. That’s why thousands of KeyBank employees volunteer each year, taking responsibility to contribute to the well-being of their local communities. When individuals come together to dedicate their time and talent to serve others, lives are brightened, and communities are transformed for the better in meaningful ways.

Neighbors Make the Difference Day began in 1991, when a group of Alaska employees volunteered for service projects and gave the day its title. By 1993, the idea had swept across many of the communities that Key serves and became an official day of employee volunteerism. It is now the hallmark of Key’s commitment to its communities and a leading corporate volunteerism effort in America.

Well, this is the best part of our company, coming together on a day like today to help our community.

It's amazing to help keep our city clean and provide to the community. I've actually never been out here and enjoyed these gardens, and it's just absolutely incredible to see what they are and love helping the city stay clean and beautiful.

But it's been great to just see the team and help out and do a little bit of good for our communities.
