Target has always believed in strengthening the communities where we do business. It’s a commitment that began when we opened our first store in 1962, and one that now extends to more than 1,700 neighborhoods throughout the United States and nearly 30 countries around the world. Each week, we give more than $3 million and countless volunteer hours to make a positive difference in the lives of our guests and team members help our communities thrive.
