The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank® today announced it is donating $100,000 to Hurricane Dorian relief efforts across the Bahamas.

“The people of the Bahamas are struggling to recover from one of the most devastating hurricanes to ever hit the region,” said Nick Miceli, TD’s Regional President, Florida. “Many of our customers and colleagues have impacted family members on the island, and as Floridians, many of us have experienced firsthand the damage these storms can cause. We’re committed to standing with our neighbors in the Bahamas and doing all we can to bring swift relief to all those affected.”

Additionally, TD Bank is offering assistance to employees and customers impacted by Hurricane Dorian from Maine to Florida through TD’s Disaster Relief Program. The bank continues to closely monitor and evaluate impacted communities to ensure those who need assistance receive it.

“Our thoughts are with the people of Abaco and Grand Bahama islands,” said Shelley Sylva, Head of Social Impact for TD Bank. “In addition to the $100,000 contribution from the TD Charitable Foundation, we are assessing additional ways to help the Bahamians rebuild and restore their lives and communities in the wake of this historic and tragic storm.”
