During the month of July 2017, NEC member, TD Bank, hosted a community fundraiser for Tree Street Youth as a part of its “Bring Change” campaign.
TD Bank’s Bring Change program aims to make a difference in low to moderate income areas through supporting local organizations. From July 1 -21, TD Bank’s Lewiston, ME location collected donations for Tree Street Youth. Greeting customers as they entered the bank was Cedric Maxewell, MVP of the 1981 NBA Finals, along with two Boston Celtics Cheerleaders. TD Bank donated $10,000 to Tree Street Youth in addition to the $325.00 raised at the event.
Tree Street Youth’s mission is to give, “refugees, immigrants and at-risk youth the resources they need to learn, graduate school and get into college. The organization offers programs in academics, the arts and athletics to help students develop the skills they need, all while fostering a unified community. The organization serves over 600 youth annually and partners with the Lewiston School system, as well as the juvenile corrections system, to ensure that those most in need receive support.”
The New England Council congratulates TD Bank and Tree Street Youth on their fundraising achievement and their commitment to giving back to the community through these “Bring Change” events. Read more in the Bangor Daily News and on TD Bank’s website.
