“This year so far, we have been fortunate to experience such an outpouring of generosity. With TD Bank, it’s so great to see such an iconic corporation so focused on giving back to the community,” said Paulette at one of TD Bank’s locations in Franklin Lakes. On hand to present the super-sized check was Regional Vice President, Charles Ponti and Regional Sponsorship Manager, Thomas Hewitt, alongside foundation Director, Salvatore V. Frassetto and David Green, Board of Advisors. “Just knowing how much these donations help children with rare illnesses receive the crucial care they need, is truly something special.”

With store locations across the East Coast, TD Bank has become a local staple, serving communities all over. Part of that trusted service comes from a commitment to making a difference. TD Bank’s charitable work focuses on being that resource for those in desperate need of a financial lifeline—from foundation support of grants to community sponsorships and even partnering with Spring Lake Toys Foundation.

“What I love about TD Bank is that they encourage us to pursue charitable venues we are passionate about, which makes us a perfect fit with Paulette’s Spring Lake Toys Foundation,” said Market President, Commercial, Donald Buckley. “Just seeing what she has accomplished for these children with rare illnesses and their families has truly been an inspiration.”

Paulette summed it up best by saying, “Aside from daily support, the generous donation from TD Bank allows us to take a step back, look towards the future and see how we can evolve our organization to have more of a positive impact on the lives of these precious children.”
