TCF Bank And Milwaukee Public Schools Partner To Keep Kids In Need Warm This Winter

TCF National Bank (TCF Bank), a subsidiary of TCF Financial Corporation (TCF) (NYSE: TCB), and Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) today announced their partnership to ensure kids stay warm and safe during the winter months. MPS is holding its annual Mitten Tree Drive and for the second, consecutive year TCF Bank's 16 branches in the Milwaukee area are public collection sites.

Residents can donate new handmade or store-bought hats, scarves, gloves and mittens at TCF Bank branches and at MPS Central Services through Jan. 6, 2017.

"We're pleased to help students get the hats, scarves, gloves and mittens they need to stay warm this winter," said Lou Campos, director of retail banking at TCF Bank. "Last year, we helped MPS break their all-time record for donations by supporting 4,000 students in need and we look forward to helping even more students this year."

"More than 80 percent of MPS students are economically disadvantaged and they need our help to stay warm and safe during the winter months," said Milwaukee Public Schools superintendent Dr. Darienne Driver. "We are grateful TCF Bank is offering its 16 conveniently located branches as donation sites for the second year. Their generous team members and customers donated new handmade and purchased items that made winter warmer for our young people."

Donated items are quickly distributed to schools with most items given to students before the holiday break.
