PERKIOMEN » KeyBank re­cently hosted its 28th an­nual Neigh­bors Make the Dif­fer­ence Day. Em­ploy­ees through­out eastern Penn­syl­va­nia spent the day vol­un­teer­ing with 21 com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions across the re­gion.

This year, 185 em­ploy­ees vol­un­teered a to­tal of nearly 750 hours. One of the projects was at the Perkiomen Wa­ter­shed Con­ser­vancy.

Key em­ploy­ees spent the af­ter­noon sow­ing na­tive seeds and trans­plant­ing seedlings at the na­tive plant green­house.

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.

“Vol­un­teer-ism is cen­tral to KeyBank’s cul­ture and to the char­ac­ter of our com­pany,” said Robert Kane Jr., pres­i­dent of the Eastern Penn­syl­va­nia Mar­ket for KeyBank. “Neigh­bors Make the Dif­fer­ence Day is one way we bring that to life and help our neigh­bor­hoods and our com­mu­ni­ties thrive.”
