REDcards for Hamilton

If you have a Target debit or credit card, did you know that Target will donate a portion of your purchases to Hamilton? 


Screen Shot 2016-02-23 at 4.28.09 PM.png

Yes!  Our school has already received over $2,500 through this program.

Taking responsibility for a debit or credit card is serious business!  Be sure to investigate the pros and cons of any card before you apply for one.  As an example, for the Target cards, you might look here, here, here, and here

Finally, if you already have a Target card, or have decided that the benefits of having one outweigh the risks, click here or on the image above to apply.  And don't forget to enter Code 32321 to designate Hamilton MS as the beneficiary of your contributions!
