TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – KeyBank celebrated the opening of its new Tarrytown district headquarters by donating $15,000 to the United Way's Participate to Graduate initiative.
"KeyBank prides itself on being a good corporate neighbor and giving back to the communities where we live and work," said Hugh Donlon, KeyBank Northeast division president. "It's become a tradition to make a donation to a local organization with the opening of any new facility, and we can't think of any better way to demonstrate our commitment to the Hudson Valley than to make an investment in the region's future. Its children."
KeyBank's move brings 43 district executives and staff to its new location at 660 White Plains Road from its previous headquarters in West Nyack. KeyBank is based out of Cleveland, Ohio.
The Participate to Graduate program helps improve educational outcomes of at-risk youth through after-school programs and leadership development. The program includes recreational activities such as dance and yoga, as well as homework supervision and computer skills. The program is a partnership between regional United Way chapters in Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Orange, Rockland and Ulster counties.
"What makes this program so unique is its regional reach,” Ruth Mahoney, president of the Hudson Valley KeyBank district said. “Through a shared focus and commitment of resources, our regional United Way branches have developed a great program that will help keep the Hudson Valley's youth engaged in the educational process by increasing skill levels and confidence. KeyBank is proud to offer our support.”
