The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, recently donated a total of $2,500 to the Center for Independent Living of North Central Florida (CILNCF) as part of the foundation’s commitment to giving back to the community.
The funds from the TD Charitable Foundation will be used towards the CILNCF’s High School High Tech (HSHT) Program for student activities such as STEM related workshops, corporate site visits, college and university campus tours, job shadowing and summer internships at local businesses.
“On behalf of the HSHT Program and the CILNCF, we are thrilled to receive this grant from the TD Charitable Foundation where funds will be used towards student activities such as job shadowing and summer internships. These experiences are extremely meaningful for our students. They allow them to get real world experiences so they can make informed decisions upon graduation and go a long way to setting them up for success in the long term,” said HSHT Program Director Melissa Merrill.
A staunch commitment to active involvement in the local community is a vital element of the TD Bank philosophy. TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank® and the TD Charitable Foundation provide support to affordable housing, financial literacy and education, and environmental initiatives, many of which focus on improving the welfare of children and families.
