TCF Bank customers and team members in Michigan donated to help local veterans and their families
The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund (FWSF), a volunteer-run nonprofit organization that supports wounded and fallen veterans and their families in Michigan, received more than $30,000 in funds raised by TCF National Bank (TCF Bank), a subsidiary of TCF Financial Corporation (TCF). TCF Bank customers and team members donated money at more than 50 retail banking locations from July to December 2015.
“We always can count on our generous customers and team members to give back to the community in a big way,” said Lou Campos, director of retail banking at TCF Bank. “Thanks to our customers and team members we increased our fundraising for The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund by more than $10,000 compared with last year. We’re proud that this money stays in Michigan to support injured and fallen veterans and their families.”
“TCF Bank is a great example of a company that gives back to the community by supporting our veterans,” said Lynn Phillips, executive director at The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund. “With the money they raised, we’ve been able to support 15-20 veterans and their families by paying for living and funeral expenses. Thank you to TCF Bank and its customers and team members for making this very substantial donation and for making life a little bit easier for veterans and their families.”
During the two years TCF Bank supported FWSF through its fundraising efforts, TCF Bank customers and team members in Michigan donated more than $50,000 to FWSF that helped 25-30 veterans and their families.
