Would you like to help schools in St. Louis Park earn some extra money?
The “Give with Target” program was announced in August with Target asking customers to help allocate up to $5 million to schools nationwide. Community members have until Sept. 21 to cast their vote.
How it works
Select a K-12 school from the list of eligible schools on the Target website and vote for it until Sept. 21, 2013 or Target determines $5 million has been awarded.
Once a school has received 25 votes, Target will donate $1 per vote, with a maximum donation of $10,000 per school, according to the Target.
