TD Bank Raising Money For Team Red, White & Blue
TAMPA, FL – In honor of U.S. veterans, TD Bank will partner with local communities in Florida, New York and Boston to support Team Red, White & Blue until Friday, Nov. 10.
As part of its Bring Change initiative, more than 180 TD Bank stores will host community fundraisers benefitting Team RWB. TD Bank will also contribute a separate grant to Team RWB through the TD Charitable Foundation.
TD Bank has locations in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties in the Tampa Bay area.
“We are thrilled to work with TD Bank to encourage local communities to help support our nation’s veterans,” said Megan King, Team RWB’s director of development. “The support provided by the Bring Change campaign will help us continue to provide impactful programs that enrich veterans’ lives.”
Team RWB connects veterans to their community through physical and social activity. Each year, Team RWB and thousands of volunteers bring veterans, their families and their communities together to create authentic relationships through these activities in an effort to increase their sense of purpose and improving their health.
“TD Bank is proud to partner with Team Red, White & Blue to honor the dedication, commitment and sacrifice our veterans have made to protect our country,” said Matthew Verney, chair of the Metro Pa N.J. Veteran Business Resource Group, TD Bank. “We are honored to include Team RWB amongst the many organizations benefitting from our Bring Change Veterans initiative this year.”
This is TD Bank’s second veterans Bring Change initiative aimed at raising money for veterans causes. This year, the program is supporting several organizations through events at 250 different TD Bank store locations, double the number of locations of last year.
The Bring Change campaign is designed to address issues like homelessness, services for those with special needs and food shortages. Since May 2015, almost 600 organizations and individuals have received support through the campaign, which has brought in more than $1.8 million in donations.
