PATERSON, N.J. - On Friday the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, The TD Charitable Foundation, donated bags of food, diapers, hygienic products, and a check for over $5,000 to Oasis in Paterson.
Oasis A Haven for Women and Children, aims to fight poverty in its community by offering resources and social services to women and their children. Oasis creates and offers programs designed to feed, clothe, educate and empower those in need. These programs are focused on adult education, youth development, social services, and more.
Through the bank’s Bring Change program, TD Bank accepted monetary donations at two area branches from March 18th and continuing through March 24th. TD Bank also collected non-perishable foods, toiletries, and infant care items to support Oasis in addition to monetary donations.
TD's Bring Change program supports people and organizations in communities across the bank’s footprint that are making a meaningful, local difference. The program focuses on issues that affect low and moderate income areas, as well as homelessness, food shortages and services for those with special needs.
Funds raised from the Bring Change campaign will go directly to Oasis to sustain the organization’s community programs.
