BANGOR - Local KeyBank employees were busy making a positive impact in their community.
Employees ditched their suits for jeans and a t-shirt for four hours as part of the 23rd annual "Neighbors Make the Difference Day."
Held the third week in May, the event is part of a national community service project.
The branch in Brewer helped out the Penobscot Theater by ripping nails out of set pieces and much more.
"Whatever they needed, we were taking screws out, we were doing a little demo, smashing of the hammers, we're checking paint cans, just having a good time," Area Operations Leader, Jessica Chute, says.
"It's just a great opportunity to get out there and give back to our communities. They are the ones who make KeyBank. So we wanted to give back to them and help out," Brewer Branch Manager, Chris Klenk explains.
Since this is a national project, today's volunteer work added up to roughly 30,000 hours of service all across the nation.
That's almost $900,000 in salary equivalent.
