On September 11, students and staff at Greenville Technical College packed goody boxes for soldiers to go to an army unit from South Carolina that has been deployed to South Korea. There are 50 soldiers in this unit, and 15 are female, so the boxes created were gender specific. Included were hygiene supplies along with snacks and games. Those participating in the project included student and employee veterans.

Following the project, lunch was served to participants with a program remembering those lost on 9/11/01.

The effort was sponsored by the TD Charitable Foundation, the giving arm of TD Bank, which provided funding for the supplies and is also supporting the college's Financial Literacy Week in October, MLK Day of Service in January, and Money Smart event in April.

"TD is committed to driving positive change through working collaborations that enrich the lives of our customers and communities," said Cal Hurst, regional vice president. "We are proud to support the worthwhile programs that are so beneficial to the hardworking students at Greenville Tech."

"We are grateful to TD Bank for a generous gift that is allowing students and employees at the college to serve others in a meaningful way," said Ann Wright, vice president for advancement with the Greenville Tech Foundation. "With this gift and others to the college, TD Bank has shown that they recognize the need for community service and the role it can play in education by increasing awareness of community needs while developing leadership and interpersonal skills."
