Over 550 Target employees have participated in projects through HOTC this summer, and we simply couldn’t wait until the end of the summer to share the great work they’ve done!
In just 6 weeks, Target volunteers have completed 18 projects with 11 different local nonprofits. And there’s still a lot of summer left!
Together, they have:
- Cleaned 24 yards for local seniors through Neighborhood Involvement Program
- Provided landscaping and clean-up at Woodland Elementary School
- Brightened up supportive housing sites for Aeon by painting railings and fences throughout two properties, and painting 5 lobbies at a third site.
- Cleaned gardens, installed a pond and repaired a fence for Gibbs Museum
- Packed 136 “day brightening kits” for seniors at Cerenity Senior Care
- Unpacked and organized 6 pallets of schools supplies for Kids In Need Foundation
- Created 225 activity kits for kids at Children’s Hospital
- Sorted fishing gear, packed tackle boxes and assembled 20 rods and reels for Fishing For Life
- Wrapped and assembled 91 Birthday Boxes for seniors served by Little Brothers/Friends of the Elderly
- Made 145 overnight kits for families staying at Children’s Hospital

The partnership between HandsOn Twin Cities continues throughout the summer, and we look forward to building on the great work that’s already been done.
