RIVER EDGE, N.J. -- Eight employees of River Edge's TD Bank participated in a Women Build last Tuesday, at Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County’s Bergenfield home site.
TD Bank brought a team of eight eager women to cut and stain the siding for the exterior of the single-family home that is coming together on Bergen Avenue. These women are part of TD Bank's Power of Women, a women's leadership initiative that encourages women to mentor each other while connecting and networking with others.
The Bergenfield project is the future home of the Pimentel family. The latest environmental and energy-efficiency standards, such as solar panels, are being used in this 1,900-square-foot home which will include three bedrooms, two and half bathrooms, a kitchen, living room, and a one-car garage.
"It was simply a WOW!derful experience and the team truly enjoyed the opportunity to help Habitat Bergen and the Pimentel family," said Joanne Westphal, TD Bank VP and Power of Women co-founder.
"Since the inception of our Women Build program two years ago, TD Bank's Power of Women initiative has been an invaluable supporter," said Habitat Bergen's Director of Volunteers Angela King. "Power of Women members have been at several of our Lowe's Clinics, Golf Networking 101 Clinic at the PGA Superstore in Paramus and now even on our construction work site. These women truly lead by example in the workforce and in the community."
