The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, recently donated a total of $10,000 to CGC as part of the foundation’s commitment to giving back to the community.
The funds from the TD Charitable Foundation will support CGC’s Child and Family Therapy program which provides at-risk youth with comprehensive, individualized treatment to reduce psychiatric symptoms such as depression, anxiety, developmental delays or suicidal thoughts, regardless of their ability to pay. CGC’s mental health professionals work with children and their families to stabilize and improve the child’s functioning, mood, self concept and developmental skills to improve long-term outcomes.
“Giving children – particularly children in need – the tools they need to succeed in life is critical to the prosperity of our community. Early identification of mental health issues and timely treatment can prevent years of unnecessary suffering. We are honored that our program has met TD Bank’s high standards for funding,” said Dr. Eliot Brenner, CGC’s President and CEO.
“We recognize the importance of supporting the Child Guidance Center of Southern CT in its mission to provide much-needed therapy services to children and adolescents in need of recovery from trauma and abuse,” said Michael LaBella, Market President, TD Bank. “TD is committed to driving positive change through working collaborations that enrich the lives of our diverse communities across Connecticut, and we are honored to be a part of this effort.”
