Employees of Key Equipment Finance, one of the nation’s largest bank-held equipment finance companies and an affiliate of KeyCorp (NYSE: KEY), worked on a variety of community projects recently to benefit organizations in their local areas during the 20th annual Neighbors Make the Difference Day.
For the May 25, 2010, day of community service, Key Equipment Finance employees in Colorado and New York assisted community organizations in their local areas with yard work, “child-proofing,” gardening, painting, landscaping, cleaning bird cages, repairing enclosures, making quilts and blankets, placing “Do Not Dump” placards on drains, organizing a pottery studio, sorting donations, making meals, assembling food packages and distributing food.
“By taking part in this leading national corporate volunteerism event, Key Equipment Finance is demonstrating its commitment to strengthening the quality of life in the communities where our employees live and work,” said Adam D. Warner, president of Key Equipment Finance. “In this single day, our employees are making a big impact by completing work projects and fulfilling other important needs of the community organizations that support our local citizens.”
