TORONTO, May 19 /CNW/ - TD Bank Group today announced it will contribute $10,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to assist those affected by the recent wildfires that have devastated the community of Slave Lake, Alberta.

"It is our hope that this donation, combined with the relief efforts of the Red Cross, will give residents the immediate support they need."
