Maine hero
• Oct 30, 2023

PORTLAND, ME, Oct. 30, 2023 – The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, today announced two $100,000 grants supporting the victims and the greater Lewiston, Maine, community following the horrific mass shootings that occurred last week.

A $100,000 grant will support the Maine Community Foundation's Lewiston-Auburn Area Response Fund to address current and emerging needs associated with this tragedy. The Response Fund seeks to help guide Lewiston-Auburn through the process of healing and every dollar donated will go to relief efforts.

United Way of Androscoggin County also will receive a $100,000 contribution from the TD Charitable Foundation to assist with resources for the 2-1-1 Maine line, a free and confidential phone number that connects people to health and human services in their community in times of crisis or for everyday needs. Individuals may also text 898-211 followed by their zip code to receive assistance.

TD Bank's community support also includes offering financial assistance through TD Cares to customers in Lewiston and those who were under shelter-in-place orders in Androscoggin County and northern Sagadahoc County. TD Cares is a relief program that includes fee refunds and other support for eligible consumer and business customers.

“As a member of the local community for more than 170 years, TD grieves with our customers, colleagues and neighbors in Maine,” said Sheryl McQuade, Regional President of New England, TD Bank. “Our bankers are ready to assist the community in this time of need.”

In addition, eligible TD employees impacted by the shootings have access to a range of resources, including the opportunity to obtain small grants from the bank to help with costs such as insurance deductibles and certain personal, family, funeral or living expenses.
