TD Bank to Distribute 20,000 Books to Local Teachers and Educators


In partnership with national nonprofit First Book, TD Bank is distributing 20,000 new books to teachers and educators to add to their classroom and school libraries.  Aimed at Pre-K – Young Adults, these books are part of TD's "Banking On Books" program, which is designed to help provide Title 1 schools with new books for the school year. This Columbia event kicks off the first of five events across the TD footprint to give away 140,000 new books in low-income school districts.

The Books On Wheels program will bring out more than 100 volunteers from TD Bank. Over 300 teachers are expected to attend, and each will receive a $100 First Book Marketplace voucher to purchase financial education-themed books and games for school libraries and classrooms, a value of $30,000.
