KeyBank Employees Roll up their Sleeves to Make a Difference

NHR welcomed KeyBank volunteers to Albrecht Lane in Pleasant Valley on Wednesday, May 25 to help with spring planting. This year is the 26th anniversary of Neighbors Make the Difference Day, a bank-wide day of volunteerism with KeyBank’s non-profit partners. Four KeyBank volunteers helped clear and plant a garden in the front of the house, set up a number of outdoor potted plants and hang flower pots from the front porch. They also put mulch in all the front gardens.

In the back of the house, the team trimmed bushes, cleared an overgrown garden and removed all the leaves so it could be planted by the people at Albrecht on Memorial Day weekend. Residence Coordinator Katie Briggs purchased all the supplies in the morning so the team could get to work as soon as they arrived. The KeyBank team got right to work so the gardens could be planted by the time the people who call Albrecht home returned from their day program.

KeyBank volunteers included Rita McPeck who is also Vice-President of the NHR Board of Directors. She was joined by her colleagues Vivian Morales, Mary Matuszewski and Rich Decker. Katie Briggs, Sabrina Parent, Jen Jefferson and Roger Lamere, all staff from Albrecht, pitched in and lent a hand. Quincy Ferguson and David McGorry from the West Road training and administrative center also came by to round out the team. Many thanks to everyone who helped!







New Horizons Resources, Inc. is a not-for-profit agency that provides services to children and adults who have developmental disabilities and live in the Hudson Valley region of New York State.

NHR was founded in 1974 by a group of parents seeking alternatives to institutionalized care for their sons and daughters. In 1981, the agency opened its first residences for adults with developmental disabilities.

The agency’s founders wanted to create services that would provide a home and the reasonable assurance of lifetime care. They also wanted to give people with disabilities opportunities to build friendships and establish relationships in their communities.

Today, NHR offers services to 450 people who have disabilities where they need them most: in their homes, at their work sites, or in our community-based residential programs.

The goal at New Horizons is to provide individuals who have developmental disabilities with opportunities and environments where they learn the skills and develop the confidence needed to live their lives as independently and as happily as possible.
