TD Bank last week announced its charitable giving arm, TD Charitable Foundation, has donated $20,000 to the South Carolina Children’s Theatre Bullying Prevention program. The program engages schoolchildren, through education and awareness, to try to reduce bullying in local schools and also teach students how to appropriately respond to bullying.
The gift will enable the South Carolina Children’s Theatre (SCCT) to bring the program to 21 elementary schools and 12 middle schools in the Greenville County School District, according to Debbie Bell, SCCT executive director.
“SCCT has partnered with the school district for 15 years to offer these important programs to their students, and we are very excited that the TD Charitable Foundation is playing this major role as the sponsor of our Bullying Prevention programs,” Bell said.
Since 2002, the TD Charitable Foundation has donated $172.2 million toward various community causes. The Foundation has especially focused on improving the well-being of children and families through their support for “affordable housing, financial literacy and education, and the environment.”
