Honoring Military Families on Veterans Day
Every November, Americans commemorate Veteran’s Day as a way to say thanks to those who have served — or continue to serve — our country. For the past four years, we’ve proudly extended a 10% military discount to all U.S. active-duty military personnel, veterans and their families to use in stores or online in early November. Guests can add a veteran or military family status to their Target Circle profile — making them eligible for bonus offers. Also with Target Circle, any member can vote to direct Target’s community giving funds to local military organizations in certain markets.
Military Business Council
The Military Business Council (MBC) is one of seven Diversity and Inclusion Business Councils at Target. MBC supports our inclusive culture by providing resources and support to team members with a connection to our nation’s military, and helps us identify opportunities to better serve job candidates, team members and guests with military connections. The MBC’s mission is to create a compelling and engaging community for team members to come together and support those who have served or are serving, including family, friends and allies.
Meet a Few of Our Partners
Our ongoing support for active-duty military, veterans and their families reaches well beyond Veterans Day. All year round, we partner with the USO, Operation Gratitude and The Mission Continues for volunteer events across the country. And as a member of Veteran Jobs Mission, we have joined with other top companies in a pledge to hire more U.S. military veterans – with nearly 300,000 veterans hired coalition-wide to date and a goal of hiring 1 million veterans by 2020.
We work with partners like Hiring America and Clear Channel to support military veterans as they transition into the workforce. Four of our team member veterans shared their success stories for iHeartRadio’s Show Your Stripes initiative, and Target was among the first companies featured in the Hiring America TV series dedicated to helping veterans find jobs.
