KeyBank Teams Up with Eight Days of Hope to Rebuild Homes in Buffalo's Masten District

KeyBank is teaming up with Eight Days of Hope (EDOH) to provide free home repairs on hundreds of homes in the Masten District neighborhood in Buffalo, NY. This effort will take place from July 17 to July 24.  

EDOH Buffalo occurs once a year in a different district of Buffalo to help bring hope to those whose homes need repair. This year, the eight-day event will bring over 1,500 volunteers from around the country to help those in the Masten District with home improvements such as painting, porch repair, roofing, carpentry, and landscaping. In 2021, this effort will bring the development taking place across the Masten District to the neighborhood level.

“From the opening of Northland Workforce Training Center to recent expansion at Erie County Medical Center and the opening of KeyBank’s East Delavan branch, there are so many transformative things happening in Buffalo’s Masten District and on the east side,” said Kawanza Humphrey, Corporate Responsibility Officer for KeyBank in Buffalo. “We are proud to partner with Eight Days of Hope and bring the revitalization happening across the east side to our neighbors in the Masten District.”

EDOH is headquartered in Tupelo, Mississippi, with a Northeastern Satellite in Buffalo and a Midwestern Satellite in Cedar Rapids, Ohio. While the nonprofit primarily serves those impacted by natural disaster, EDOH strives to give back to the communities it calls home, like Buffalo.
