(WXYZ) — TCF Bank created a $100,000 match incentive program in collaboration with Henry Ford Health System's COVID-19 Emergency Needs Fund.
“Our hospital workers and first responders need immediate support to keep our community safe and strong,” said Gary Torgow, TCF Financial Corp Chairman. “Our support for the COVID-19 Emergency Needs Fund, together with other individuals and businesses, will boost the amazing efforts of those who are putting their lives on the line for the benefit of us all.”
Henry Ford says that support from members of the community is a "critical part" of responding to the COVID-19 need.
Emergency funds are being deployed to advance the development of new protocols, diagnostics and treatments critical to addressing and stopping the spread of COVID-19.
“We are grateful and inspired by the outpouring of support from our communities, which has included donated medical supplies, meals, equipment and more. Now the impact of these efforts will be amplified with this incredible match from TCF Bank and will help us to more rapidly address this evolving crisis,” said Mary Jane Vogt, chief development officer for Henry Ford Health System.
