Target Supports Our Troops

Target supports our troopsTarget, one of America’s leading department stores, is leading the way with their support of our troops.  They’ve got several programs in place to make military life a lot easier.  For instance, they have a military support network, which gives resources and support to associates with military connections.    Their reservist pay and benefits far exceed those required by law.

Target has supported military organizations with money as well as donated labor.  They support Voice of Democracy, a scholarship program, by providing a trip to Washington D.C. for the finalists.  Target also supports United Through Reading, which is a program to keep families united by recording on DVD a story being read by a military parent for their kids to watch while they’re away.

Target Supports Our TroopsTarget supports a program called Our Military Kids, which helps children of deployed and injured military members.  Target also supports Operation Gratitude, which is a program that supports our troops all over the world with care packages.  Target has also worked with American Legions, donating goods and gift cards.  They also support volunteer activities which help with the transition back to civilian life.

Let’s hear it for Target, one of America’s great supporters of our troops.  They put their money where their mouth is when it comes to supporting our troops.  Let’s do the same and support them.  God bless our troops.

  1. I like Target stores, but I’ve always been a bit put off by their high prices. However, I’d be willing to pay a bit more knowing that it’s helping our troops.
