Did you know there's an easy way to help us raise money for our school? It's called Take Charge of Education, and it's helping our school right now. Have a Target REDcard? You can ensure it's working harder for you (and our school!).
Here's how it works: visit Target.com/tcoe or call 1-800-316-6142 to designate our school, then use your REDcard whenever you shop. When you use your REDcard (Target Credit Card, Target Debit Card or Target Visa Credit Card), Target will donate up to 1% of your purchases to the eligible K–12 school of your choice.
Grandparents, alumni, friends and neighbors are all welcome to participate in the program. The more people we involve, the harder the program works for our school.
