The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, recently donated a total of $7,500 to Branches as part of the foundation’s commitment to giving back to the community. A staunch commitment to active involvement in the local community is a vital element of the TD Bank philosophy.
