Target is participating as a sponsor of the 29th Annual National Night Out (NNO) event on August 7, 2012, marking the eighth year of its partnership with the National Association of Town Watch. The event will be held from 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM in the Target parking lot. Target will offer support to Missoula County Sheriffs Department, Missoula Police Department, Montana Highway Patrol, Fish, Wildlife & Parks, St. Patrick’s Hospital, American Red Cross, and other agencies by hosting National Night Out at Target.

This sponsorship is part of the ongoing support Target provides to local communities throughout the country. Since 1946, Target has given 5% of its income to the communities it serves. Today, that equals more than $3 million to support education, the arts, social services, and volunteerism. Target also has a proud history of partnership with local law enforcement agencies. Through its Target & BLUE program, Target supports local law enforcement by sharing information, technology and expertise while focusing on safety and security issues that affect guests, team members and communities. In 2011, more than 37 million people across the nation participated in NNO.
