Target to Give Park View’s Elementary School $15,000 Grant
Recently, Target announced it had plans to invest more than $12 million to local schools across the country. The donations will impact 150 in-need schools and 75,000 students across the country through the 2012 Target School Library Makeover program.
According to a representative from Target that contacted me, the Bruce-Monroe @ Park View Elementary School will receive one of the $15,000 grants. The grant will help the school obtain Spanish-language books for their library.
In addition to Bruce-Monroe @ Park View, two other D.C. area schools will also be receiving grants. The other two schools are Manor View Elementary and Garfield Elementary.
Lastly, Target will show its continued support of the Target School Library Makeover program’s previous library makeover recipients by donating $15,000 reading grants, for a total of $1.5 million, to more than 100 schools across the country. Target is committed to giving $1 billion for education by 2015.Schools comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
