In addition, TD announced on March 24 that it will award bonuses of up to $1,000 plus two extra paid personal days to eligible TD Bank employees who are working onsite in TD stores and other required locations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We continue helping our customers with their banking needs thanks in large part to our colleagues who continue to staff TD Bank locations," Braca said. "I also want to express heartfelt gratitude, admiration, and respect to my TD colleagues. I am so very honored to lead such a dedicated team during these tough times."
Supporting our Communities
The spread of COVID-19 is creating new challenges for the most vulnerable in our communities and placing unprecedented demands on our healthcare systems. To help alleviate the burden, the TD Charitable Foundation has shifted its funding priorities and adapted its application process to accommodate the needs of our community partners, making every effort to be flexible and efficient in assisting these vital organizations.
In addition, TD has already deployed emergency grant funds to our local teams for allocation to community relief funds and provided direct funding to the National Association of Community Health Centers to provide medical support to community health centers in Boston, New York, Washington, D.C., Florida, Philadelphia and New Jersey as they respond to COVID-19.
"As we work to continue meeting the banking needs of our customers and our communities, we cannot forget the people who are suffering from COVID-19 or those who have been impacted by this pandemic outbreak." Braca said. "The TD Ready Commitment, our corporate citizenship platform, is providing access to needed care, better health outcomes and financial security as we navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19."
