TSQ Inc. operates a community food pantry. For over 30 years, food packages have been provided on a weekly basis to needy families and individuals in Queens and Western Nassau County. Current, over 400 packages are delivered weekly. The entity operates on an all-volunteer basis, with a minimum of 90 cents/dollar donated used for food procurement and distribution. This Bring Change event will allow the organization to supplement its donor base of contributions.
 
The president of Tomchei Shabbos of Queens Inc., Isaac Katz, was really appreciative to be in partnership with TD brand and the manager of Kew Gardens Hills. “The staff members were really happy to be involved with such a committed organization that serves the Queens community,” said TD Store Manager Bernard Dolington.
 
“As a society, we often take and not give, so it's great to have an event like this where you see so many people focus on giving.”
 
With 500 events planned through 2016, this program promises to raise more than $1 million in support of local organizations. To see a video recap of where we are to date, please visit https://youtu.be/4uAR0CiRLCM.  To learn more about the program, visit www.tdbringchange.com.
