Health and Human Services
In these difficult economic times we recognize the value of partnering with key not-for-profit, public and private organizations to meet an increased demand for basic services - heat, shelter and food. Working together, we can accomplish more.
Some communities in the U.S. were particularly stressed by the economic climate. In response, the TD Charitable Foundation made 555 grants totaling $5.8 million to provide basic human services to those in need.
The TD Charitable Foundation donated more than $450,000 in just two months to food banks from Maine to Florida, providing more than 1.7 million meals to those in need.
A couple of examples include:
- The Regional Food Bank of northeastern New York, which collects large donations of food from the food industry and distributes them to charitable agencies serving hungry and disadvantaged people in 23 counties – that’s nearly 20 million pounds of food a year to over 1,000 agencies.
- In South Florida, The Daily Bread Food Bank empowers local not-for-profit organizations to feed the needy and improve their lives. The $25,000 grant made to Florida’s Daily Bread Food Bank was the largest donation in the organization’s history.
