Local bankers help out around the community

Hundreds of bankers didn't work bankers hours today.

Instead they were out and about in the community volunteering.

Nearly 80,000 Key Bank employees nationwide participated in the company's 23rd annual community service day.

Two thirds of the banks' branches were closed starting at noon for the event.

In Mishawaka, this group helped out with Habitat for Humanity.

They were busy assembling wall studs that would ready for use at Habitat's warehouse.

“We get a little lesson on what the organization does and who we helping before we start so it's make us feel pretty good about what are project is doing,” said Key Bank of Northern Indiana President Randy Foster.

With the rainy weather today, some of the projects had to be moved inside.

Some other projects in Michiana include working at Reins For Life, repairing fences at a little league field in Elkhart and landscaping at the Wellfield Botanic Gardens in Elkhart.
