Since the middle of August voting has been open in Target’s “Give With Target,” program helping to raise money for schools across the country.
Through the program Target is donating up to $5 million to school and is inviting customers to make donations to the school of their choice as well. Voting ends on Saturday and once a school receives at least 25 votes Target will donate $1 per vote with a maximum donation of $10,000.
All of the Howell Public Schools as well as the private schools like St. Veronica’s and the Freehold Regional High School District schools can receive a vote by going to the Target Facebook page and then going to the page for the Give With Target program.
The school that reaches 10,000 votes first or has the highest number of votes will receive a special celebration. “The response to last year’s Give With Target program was overwhelmingly positive, and we are excited to invite our guests to designate $5 million to their schools this year,” said Laysha Ward, president, community relations. “By rallying communities across the country in support of education, Target is playing a role in helping put more kids on the path to high school graduation.”
Last year more than 30,000 schools benefitted from the program and the company has set a goal of giving $1 billion to education by the end of 2015.
