Need a good reason to cash in your loose change? Consider donating all or part of it to a tax deductible and very worthy charity. On Friday, Dec. 18, TD Bank, 475 Port Washington Blvd., is holding a “Bring Change” event to benefit of the Port Washington Senior Citizens Center.
From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the bank will match any donation made through its Penny Arcade coin counting machine up to $2,000 to the Senior Center. You can donate the entire total of your coins deposited in the coin counting machine or a portion of it. All donations will receive a receipt from the Senior Center representative for tax deduction purposes. TD Bank will waive the coin transaction fee for those making donations to the Senior Citizens Center. As always, TD Bank account holders do not pay this transaction fee.
The bank’s new program, “Bring Change” is a fundraising program that enables TD Bank to give back to the communities in which they operate. Also, since the holiday season is upon us, this program offers an excellent life lesson for children to participate in and know they are helping senior citizens.
By using the Penny Arcade coin counting machines to raise funds for worthy nonprofits, TD Bank’s “Bring Change” program is accomplishing its mission to help the underserved members in communities around the country. In addition to the Port Washington branch, the bank is holding this event nationwide. Their ultimate goal is to give back a total of $1,000,000 to more than 500 groups in need within their branches’ communities.
All donations raised go directly to the Senior Center to support the various life-enriching programming offered to its members. If enough members of the community participate, more than the $4,000 goal could be raised.
