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.

“Volunteerism is central to KeyBank’s culture and to the character of our company,” said Sterling Kozlowski, Maine Market President, KeyBank. “Neighbors Make the Difference Day is one way we bring that to life and help our neighborhoods and our communities thrive.”
