Help your school by using your Target Card


If you designate Manteno Elementary School as the beneficiary, your purchases made with your TARGET Visa can result in money coming to your child's school. Through the Take Charge of Education program, Target donates an amount equal to 1% of REDcard purchases made at Target and 1/2% of Target Visa purchases made elsewhere, to our school. For those of you who are uncomfortable using charge cards, you can pay using the card, and walk over to the service desk and write a check. You haven't spent any additional money, but some still comes back to our school!


This week, we received a check for $640.91 from this program! We put this money into our "donated assistance" activity fund, which has been used for a variety of uses in the past ranging from helping obtain winter items for students in need, purchasing supplementary curricular items, and helping to fund the purchase of interactive white (Promethean) boards for classrooms!
