The Target Corporation has about $2.5 million it wants to get rid of to benefit local schools across the nation, including those found right here in Rosemont.
According to its website, people can vote for their respective schools through the "Give With Target" sweepstakes. Here's how it works, according to the site:
Simply choose a K-12 school in our list of eligible schools and vote for it weekly through September 8 or when $2.5 million in Target GiftCards® have been awarded, whichever occurs first. A school will receive a $25 Target GiftCard for every 25 votes received during the Promotion Period; up to a maximum of $10,000 in gift cards. For example, schools that receive less than 25 votes will not receive any gift cards, while schools that receive 25-49 votes receive a $25 Target GiftCard and schools that receive 50-74 votes receive $50 in gift cards. If the school you chose is not on our list, please choose another school.
Among the schools listed, 20 Fair Oaks schools are represented, from elementary, middle, private, Waldorf and high schools.
