Target Teams Up With Salvation Army for the Holidays

The Salvation Army is partnering with Target stores in Omaha and across the country in a 2010 holiday promotion.

 


 

This week only, November 14 - November 20, when shoppers purchase a Target Gift Card of $20 or more, Target will donate $1 per card to The Salvation Army up to $400,000.

The cards are designed specifically for the holidays and can be loaded with any amount from $5 up to $5,000. Donations will benefit The Salvation Army Tree of Lights Campaign. In Omaha, contributions support 25 human service programs that offer a wide array of assistance to those less fortunate.

About the Salvation Army

The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in London in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. 82 cents of every dollar The Salvation Army spends is used to support those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
