School Dollars

TargetWant to earn extra money for the school? – Then sign up for a REDcard at Target with their Take Charge of Education project (TCOE)! Target donates 1% of all REDcard purchases made at the store or on their website, and last year St. JosephSchool earned $930.23. In the past 17 years, SJS earned $6,520.75. So far this year we’ve accumulated $1,183.01. That total reflects 53 families signed up for REDcards – just imagine how much more we could be earning if more of our families were part of the program. You can enroll with TCOE and get your REDcard by visiting the website target.com/tcoe or by calling 1-800-316-6142 – or ask a cashier who can help you get the process started. Since TCOE was started in 1997, Target has paid more than 100,000 schools $324 million, credited to 1.5 million shoppers. And the best news is that the money given to St. Joe’s can be spent any way we need to.
