Since 2008, Target has provided funding to our Early Childhood Initiative in New Hope, which gives preschool and first grade children access to quality education, as well as the academic and emotional support they need to excel in the classroom. Not only has Target awarded generous grants to the program for the past eight years, they’ve also continued to volunteer their time and energy both in the United States and in Guatemala. Team members from Target-Guatemala visited our New Hope site last Thursday to present their renewed grant to the program. They also brought a snack and cake to share with the first grade classroom. Thank you, Target, for your financial commitment to Common Hope’s work and for volunteering your time to our students and programs.

This grant from Target was a United Way Worldwide grant on behalf of the generosity of Target.
