The Take Back Your Neighborhood civic association last week welcomed two employees of the TD Bank branch at Levick Street and Roosevelt Boulevard.
Store manager Jamie-Lynn Marshbank and assistant store manager Bianca Otero brought brochures and discussed the bank’s drive-through service, savings accounts available to newborns, free money orders and discounted checks for people 60 and older and no-charge ATMs at Walgreens and Rite Aid.
Also, TD runs a summer reading program that rewards kids in first through fifth grades with $10 if they read 10 books.
Marshbank and Otero invited TBYN members to learn more by visiting TD.com
