From December 16 through December 20, local Target stores celebrated “the season of giving” by donating holiday trees to United Way as a part of the Target Share-a Tree Program.
This is the 20th consecutive year for this outstanding holiday partnership. On a national level, Target stores across the country donated 2,678 decorated trees worth an estimated $500,000 to families in need.
“A single act of kindness is an important step in any effort to improve lives and strengthen and support your community. The Target Share-a-Tree program does just that,” said United Way President and CEO Brian Gallagher. “For 20 years now, United Way has been proud to partner with Target to give lift to this very special program and bring holiday cheer to families everywhere.”
“The holiday season is about sharing with others, especially those in need,” said President of Target Community Relations and Target Foundation Laysha Ward. “With our partners at United Way, Target is honored to continue the tradition of sharing our holiday trees with families across the country.”
