Perhaps you caught a glimpse of the TCF team popping up around town surprising people with free lunch, free coffee and more. You may also have noticed Food Bank of the Rockies barrels at TCF branches throughout Metro Denver.
TCF Bank decided to make a difference in a different way last month, helping the hungry in Minneapolis, Detroit, Chicago and Denver. They contributed a dollar for each item donated and for each person using #SurprisinglyTCF on social media. And today, they brought in 1,000 food items and a check for FBR totaling $10,000!
“Today TCF Bank was honored and excited to present Food Bank of the Rockies with a $10,000 donation and over 1,000 nonperishable food items. I would like to thank our customers, employees, and the Denver community for helping us reach the goals of our TCF Surprisingly Rewarding Moments campaign and present these items today. Food Bank of the Rockies is a very important resource for the Denver community and we are very pleased and proud to support their great causes,” said Tim Meyer, Mountain West Branch Banking Director.
FBR is thrilled TCF Bank’s campaign was so successful and we’re excited to be able to share 40,000 meals for our hungry neighbors thanks to TCF Bank and their customers’ kindness. What a nice #Surprise!

All 10 year old Garrett wanted for Christmas was a pair of new headphones, a giant cookie and for people to donate food to Food Bank. So for 3 weeks, with the help of his mom, he collected food from neighbors, friends, his hockey team and anyone else willing to donate. When he came to make his donation, Garrett collected enough to fill an entire wire bin. Thanks to his efforts, the 448 pounds he and his friends contributed will provide 373 meals for hungry people in our community! Garrett , we appreciate your generous spirit. Thank you for helping us feed hope this holiday season!! Do you have a generous kid in your life? Introduce them to our Kung Food Fighters Kids Club?
