Team members at our new headquarters already have had the chance to share in our tradition of volunteerism. Nearly 400 Target Canada team members and company leaders turned out in July 2012 to help with volunteer events throughout Mississauga, Ont., in partnership with the United Way of Peel Region. In addition to cleaning up local parks and lending a hand at area food banks, we also announced a $125,000 donation to the United Way to help fund future programs in support of Peel Region families.
Additionally, on December 6, 2012, the Target Volunteer Council organized a Day of Caring for more than 500 team members from our Mississauga HQ. We assisted over 20 leading non-profit organizations with over 1,000 volunteer hours. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Food Banks Canada, First Book Canada, Holland Bloorview Rehabilitation Hospital, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Humane Society, Children’s Aid Society and Canadian Red Cross were among the organizations we supported.
