More than 9,000 TD employees take part in shoreline cleanup

From September 19-27, 2009, more than 9,000 TD employees from all across Canada registered for 300 local cleanups at shorelines, lakes and rivers as part of the 16th annual TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.

“We had more than 40 TD employees and customers volunteer their time at the Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park, and we picked up enough litter to fill 10 bags of garbage and one bag of recyclables,” said Rayhannah Khera, Customer Service Representative at a branch in Vancouver and Site Coordinator for a public cleanup that took place on September 27th at the city’s popular Stanley Park. “The shoreline cleanup gives us an opportunity to help protect local marine species and give back and get to know our community.”

“The most common feedback we receive each year is, ‘We can’t believe how much garbage we picked up!’ and ‘We even had customers stop by to let us know how much they respected and appreciated TD’s efforts in helping the environment,’” says Mary Desjardins, Executive Director, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation. “Once again TD employees have shown they walk the talk when it comes to community giving and involvement and we should all feel very proud for making such an outstanding environmental impact.”

“All-in-all we collected more than 1,000 cigarette butts, however our most unusual item was definitely a cushioned, orange office chair complete with all four wheels,” adds Khera.
