According to target.com, a total of $495.62 has been donated to the school from the start of this program. These donations were made possible by the 17 REDCard holders that have designated their donations from their purchases to the school. The most recent donation was made in August of 2011.
Parent Karen O’Hagan said, “I use my REDCard every time I go to Target because its something little I can do to help my child’s school get a little extra money.” Some of her day-to-day purchases, like produce and clothes and even typical items like paper towels, can help the school earn money. Mrs. O’Hagan also added that “Buying something little [like] cleaning supplies can make a big difference when the total cost is added up.”
