TD Helps Slave Lake

TORONTO, May 19 /CNW/ - TD Bank Group today announced it will contribute $10,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to assist those affected by the recent wildfires that have devastated the community of Slave Lake, Alberta.

"It's very difficult to hear of the loss and suffering residents face because of this terrible disaster," said Monique Bateman, Senior Vice President, TD Canada Trust, Prairie Region. "It is our hope that this donation, combined with the relief efforts of the Red Cross, will give residents the immediate support they need."

TD is directing its donation to the Canadian Red Cross to provide emergency shelters and much needed supplies to assist those who have been forced to evacuate their homes.

TD will accept cash donations to the Canadian Red Cross at TD Canada Trust branches beginning May 20th. In addition, the TD Helps program, which provides assistance to customers during challenging times, is available to all customers impacted by this tragedy.

TD Insurance has also set up temporary claims centres at the Athabasca and Westlock evacuation centres and has employees on the ground at the centre in Edmonton to provide support and financial assistance to impacted insurance customers.
