Just in time for summer, Target unveiled a newly refreshed patio and play space for the kids and families at Target House. Built in 1999, Target House is a long-term housing facility where families can stay for free as their kids receive life-saving treatments at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn.
Besides being a home-away-from-home, Target House is also filled with cozy common areas (many designed by our celebrity friends and partners!) where the families can connect, relax and play together. This year, we’re reimagining and remodeling some of those important spaces, building in new features and refreshing the décor for the residents to enjoy.
To kick things off, we gave the outdoor pavilion and play area a makeover featuring products from Target’s Home, Patio, Toys and Sporting Goods assortments. On hand to help? More than 50 of our team member volunteers, who built new seating, planted flower boxes, assembled furniture, trikes and toys, and more. Take a peek at how it all came together:
Next up? We’ll build a new pantry and fill it with everyday essentials—cereal, snacks, canned goods, personal care products, household cleaners, and more—that Target House families can order and have delivered to their rooms.

This project is just one of many ways we support St. Jude. As a proud partner for more than 20 years, Target has donated millions toward its mission to find cures and save children. (Check out more of what we’ve accomplished here.) Our support helps ensure that no family ever gets a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.
