TARGET
Did you know that Target donates to local schools??

 

For those with a Target REDcard (Credit Card or Debit Card), select any K-12 school and Target will donate 1% of their purchases made on the Target REDcard to the school. It’s super easy and you can choose the school online in less than 5 minutes. The program is called “Take Charge of Education Report Card.” 

 

We encourage those parents with a Target REDcard to choose Montclair Elementary School as their school to receive the donation.  We are not trying to get parents to sign up for a credit card, make MES a beneficiary of the one you already have!
