KeyBank has donated $5,000 to The Road Home to match donations made by the public during the charity’s annual Holiday Radio-a-Thon.
"We are proud to be a longtime supporter of The Road Home and its efforts to help Utah’s homeless," Jill Taylor, president of KeyBank’s Utah district, said in a statement. "The sad fact is that shelters are full of Utah families and we hope this contribution will aid in meeting some of the demand and inspire others who are able to give this season of generosity."
In addition to the $5,000 check, Taylor presented $1,200 collected by bank employees who decided to forgo annual gift exchanges this year to support The Road Home. The KeyBank Foundation will matching the cash donation.
KeyBank operates 39 branches in Utah.
