During the Thanksgiving holiday of 2006, Target and the Salvation Army partnered with magician David Blaine to send several families on a shopping spree the morning of Black Friday. The challenge held that if Blaine could successfully work his way out of a spinning gyroscope by the morning of Black Friday, then several families would receive $500 shopping certificates. The challenge was completed successfully by Blaine.[78]
During disasters, Target has been a major benefactor for relief efforts. .Target provided monetary and product donations during the September 11 attacks; it also donated money for relief efforts for the 2004 tsunami in South Asia and donated $1.5 million (U.S.) to the American Red Cross in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It also allowed its store properties in the affected area to be used as command centers for relief organizations.^ Target is committed to providing guests with great design through innovative products, in-store experiences and community partnerships.

[79] Other companies reducing the PVC on their shelves include Wal-Mart, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, Nike, and Apple.[79] Target stores have been taking environmental measures by reusing materials within their stores and recycling certain products like broken hangers, cardboard, rechargeable batteries, etc.[80] Target is beginning to reduce energy use with energy-efficient storefronts, and reducing waste with recycling programs.[81] Also, all Target stores in the U.S. use plastic carts with metal frames. In mid-2006, Target took it a step further when it began introducing a newer cart design made entirely of plastic. It also uses the same design in its hand-use baskets.[82]
Target released a 13-page report in 2007 that outlined their current and future plans for becoming more earth-friendly according to LEED. Such efforts include installing sand filtration systems for the store's wastewater. Recycling programs will be aimed at garment hangers, corrugated cardboard, electronics, shopping carts, shrink wrap, construction wastes, carpeting and ceiling tiles and roofing materials. .All stores in Oklahoma will be partnered with Oklahoma Gas & Electric to exclusively use wind power for all Target stores in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.^ Southern Indiana Gas and Electric Company d/b/a Vectren Power Supply Inc.

There are currently four green-roof Target stores in Chicago.
Target carries over 700 organic and alternative products from brands such as Archer Farms, Burt's Bees, and Method Products. They also sell clothes made from organic cotton, non-toxic cleaners, low-energy lighting and electronics, non-toxic and non-animal tested cosmetics, and furniture made from recycled materials. As of June 2007, Target has been offering reusable shopping bags as an alternative to disposable plastic bags. Target gift cards are made from corn-based resins. All of the stores' packaging is done with a modified paperboard/clamshell option and has goals for phasing out plastic wrap completely.[83]

[89] Originally, the lab was created as an internal need for the company to investigate instances of theft and fraud and other criminal actions that have occurred on its own properties. Eventually, the company began offering pro bono services to law enforcement agencies across the country. Target's Forensic Services has assisted agencies at all levels of government, including federal agencies such as the United States Secret Service, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The labs have become such a popular resource for law enforcement that Target has had to restrict its assistance to violent felonies.[90][91]

Criticism

Practices that cause some concern include lack of a living wage certification, lack of labor unions, and Target's contribution to urban sprawl.[92] .Liza Featherstone, contributing editor to the "The Nation" magazine and author of Selling Women Short: The Landmark Battle for Workers' Rights at Wal-Mart, stated the following in an interview.^ Frankly, I need to take the Vito Corleone approach when following Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

"Aesthetically, we all like Target better, but their wages are in many places low or just as low, and they all represent the Wal-Martization of our economy, which is the exchange of low prices for poor work conditions."[93]

Liza Featherstone, The Trouble with Wal-Mart: An interview with Liza Featherstone

In addition to Target's lack of labor unions, several employees have stated that, during new employee training sessions, videos and lectures included strong anti-union messages. Often, managers have threatened employees with losing their job if they are caught trying to organize a union, similar in fashion to Wal-Mart's practices.[94]
In 2002, the company was alerted to sporting caps and shorts having the number "88" embroidered on them. This number has been used by known white supremacist groups as slang for "Heil Hitler". A customer informed the company of the offensive merchandise. Target did not pull the merchandise or issue public apology until the Southern Poverty Law Center echoed its concern and the media began reporting on the issue.[95]

Major sponsorships

The Target Chip Ganassi Racing IndyCar visiting Purdue University
Target owns the naming rights to the Target Center and Target Field in Minneapolis. It also sponsors the NASCAR and is a long-time sponsor of the IndyCar racing teams of Chip Ganassi Racing. In the 2002 and 2003 NASCAR seasons, the #41 Chip Ganassi Target car was driven by Jimmy Spencer; for the 2004 season and 2005 seasons, Casey Mears drove the car. In 2006, Reed Sorenson took over the #41 when Mears moved to a different Chip Ganassi car on the same team. Sorenson drove the car through the 2008 season and Target has also had some major sponsorship time on the Ganassi Racing #40 car with Dario Franchitti and Jeremy Mayfield who subbed for the injured Franchitti. The 40 team has since been shut down. For 2009, the Target sponsorship moved to the #42 driven by Juan Pablo Montoya with the newly formed Earnhardt Ganassi Racing. .Target also sponsored Earnhardt Ganassi Racing's #8 car driven by Aric Almirola , which it co-sponsors in some races with other sponsors such as Guitar Hero and TomTom until the team was disbanded in May 2009. The 2009 season marked the 20th Anniversary of the Target race program (1990-present).^ That model may be plausible for some expenditures on the acquirer's side, but it does not describe National Starch or any other target corporation very well.

Tuesdays are free at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Illinois, courtesy of Target. In its hometown of Minneapolis, Target sponsors the Target Free Thursday Nights at the Walker Art Center, where admission is free after 4 p.m. as well as in its sister-city Saint Paul hosting "Target Third Free Sundays" at the Minnesota Children's Museum.
