Target pitches in for Living Desert trip
#1 Apr 2, 2008
I second the Target praises. A few hot summers ago I found out that some of the local kids couldn't use the pools (at SC Park and the Dome) because they didn't have bathing suits. I recalled the bulletin board Walmarts always post so prominently in their stores of all the good they do for the community, so I described our situation out here and asked the WM in La Quinta if they could spare some kids bathing suits--total ignore and give-her-the-run-around seemed to be their policy to my calls, in person visits, and letters.
So I gave up on Walmart because the summer was progressing and not getting any cooler. I asked the Target store down the block and their response was immediate. They gave me a $50 gift certificate (by then, there were plenty of bathing suits on clearance) which I gave to the Youth Center to help the neediest of kids get bathing suits so they could cool off, practice a great sport, and just have fun.
