Target And United Way "Share A Tree" And Bring Holiday Cheer To Families In Need

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the 22 nd consecutive year, Target stores across the country are celebrating the season by donating holiday trees to United Way as part of the Target Share-a-Tree Program.


Throughout December, United Way and its volunteers will distribute the trees—worth over $200,000—to families in need as well as partners such as shelters, community centers and childcare programs.

"United Way is proud of our longstanding partnership with Target on this special program that makes the holidays a little bit brighter for families," said United Way Worldwide President and CEO Brian Gallagher. "We appreciate Target's leadership in communities nationwide and hope Share-a-Tree inspires everyone to find unique ways to give back and lift someone else's spirit."

As further demonstration of its commitment to building strong communities, Target team members volunteered more than 475,000 hours in 2012 in communities across the country.

"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."
