Target Donates $500,000 For Hurricane Sandy Relief

Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) announced today it has donated $500,000 in monetary support and products to assist with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. The donation will include $425,000 in cash and in-kind donations to the American Red Cross, $50,000 in cash donation to the Salvation Army and $25,000 in gift cards to local Target stores to help with community needs.

“When disaster strikes, Target listens and acts quickly to donate time, money and essentials to help support the needs of our communities,” said Gregg Steinhafel, Chairman, President and CEO, Target. “Our thoughts are with the all of the residents impacted by Hurricane Sandy and we hope our donation will aid in the East Coast’s recovery.”

The safety and well-being of the Target team remains a top concern for the company. Target has reopened the majority of its stores across the East Coast and is in the process of assessing the storm’s impact on its facilities. The majority of Target stores are open, but a few remain closed. In addition, Target will continue to monitor road conditions and work with its distribution centers and vendors, once transportation restrictions are lifted, to replenish our stores quickly with essentials the community needs for clean-up and recovery.

Teams across Target spend countless hours preparing for disasters of any magnitude and will continue to help the East Coast as these communities work to recover from this crisis.
