At Target, we’re driven by our purpose to help all families discover the joy of everyday life. One way our incredible team lived that purpose in 2023? Volunteering for over 1 million hours in communities across the country and around the globe. This industry-leading volunteerism milestone not only underscores our commitment to the communities we serve, but also highlights how we use our size and scale to make a meaningful impact.

Galvanized into action

There’s a unique story behind each volunteer hour. A couple of examples? Jennifer M., human resources executive team leader, gave back to the Move Mountains organization after it supported her family through Hurricane Ian. Pez E., human resources expert, poured her hours into supporting Tewa Woman United, an organization that helped her through the delivery of her son.
