For many years for one afternoon in June, local KeyBanks shut down and go out into the community as a way of giving back. For the past few years, KeyBank in Chelsea has chosen St. Louis Center as the place they spend their afternoon. This year they put their skills to work by assembling new furniture for St. Joseph Hall.

Communities thrive when volunteers unite.

As stated on the KeyBank website:

“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 in their local community. By 1993, the idea had swept across many of the communities that Key serves and officially became known as Neighbors Make the Difference Day, Key’s 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.”

We are thankful that each year KeyBank volunteers reach out to the Center to lend a hand. Their help and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated!

St. Louis Center provides an opportunity to interact with and get to know community members with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.

Those who do quickly learn that labels are not people, and the people who call St. Louis Center home are extraordinary in many ways.
