Community Partner: TD Bank
Throughout the month of June employees of the TD Bank Group are promising to put the ‘fun’ in fundraising, all in support of the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Each June, TD employees across Canada work to create fun and exciting in-branch fundraising initiatives. In addition, TD offers an automatic monthly donation program that sees TD matching customer and employee donations up to $1 million dollars annually, ensuring that contributions go even further.
“TD employees are proud to support their local Children’s Hospital,” says Hamida Sachedina, Manager, Community Relations, TD Bank Group. “They have fun with the June grassroots event and feel good knowing they are giving back and making an impact on the Children’s Hospital of Manitoba.”
It’s been a treasured, life-changing relationship for 22 years.
“TD Bank Group is a cherished partner with the Children’s Hospital Foundation,” says Gary Rozak, Program Director, Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. “Since 1994, TD Bank Group has raised over $1.75 million dollars for the Children’s Miracle Network, with every dollar coming back to the hospital to help a sick child.”
The TD family appreciates that kids need the specialized care and equipment that only Children’s Hospital can provide. In Manitoba, TD employees got to experience the impact of their amazing efforts first hand.
“We had the privilege of filming part of our 20th fundraising anniversary video at the Children’s Hospital of Manitoba,” says Sachedina. “This experience enabled our local employees to surprise kids at the hospital with gifts and spend some quality time with them. Our employees will never forget that day.”
Equally unforgettable is the outstanding contribution of this amazing corporation.
“When the TD Bank Group across the country bands together to raise money, it goes a long way to helping save the lives of sick children,” says Rozak. “We can purchase multiple pieces of equipment or a major piece of equipment for one of the many areas of the hospital that will have a direct impact on the life of a sick child.”
Bear hugs to TD Bank Group, and their customers, for making a difference in the lives of sick kids in Manitoba, and across the country.
