Team members at KeyBank in Chardon joined 8,000 KeyBank employees nationwide and participated in “Neighbors Make the Difference Day” on Thursday, May 24. In partnership with United Way Services of Geauga County, KeyBank employees volunteered at WomenSafe, a local domestic violence shelter and United Way partner agency. Employees spent the afternoon assisting with landscaping projects and donation sorting.
I’ve worked in Chardon for many years, but I never realized all the services that WomenSafe provides,” said Jonathan Schneider, Branch Manager. “Not only does this project give us an opportunity to help WomenSafe with the maintenance of their facility, but it also raises awareness among our employees about abuse and neglect in our county.”
KeyBank understands that personal, business, and community prosperity go hand in hand. Both KeyBank and United Way share a common goal of helping people and communities achieve economic self-sufficiency.
United Way Services of Geauga County facilitates volunteer opportunities for many local businesses. Day of Action events can help employees engage more deeply with their community, foster a stronger sense of unity with coworkers, and provide a meaningful way to improve lives.
