They didn’t need to do that


Target deserves to be commended this week for donating $25,000 to the American Red Cross to aid those affected by a tropical storm and volcanic eruption that impacted Guatemala.

Moving forward, we will continue to monitor the situation and work with our non-profit partners to assist with disaster-relief efforts in the region.”
