“Subject: Target Stores Coming to Canada Soon – Please Read!
Target Stores what a surprise! Wasn’t it last Christmas that Target refused to let the Salvation Army ring their bells in front of their stores? Dick Forrey of the Vietnam Veterans Association wrote.Recently we asked the local TARGET store to be a proud Sponsor of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during our Spring recognition event. Remember there are Canadians occupying space on these walls. We received the following reply from the local TARGET management:Veterans do not meet our area of giving. We only donate to the arts, social action Groups, gay & lesbian causes and education. So I’m thinking, if the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and
Veterans in general, do not meet their donation criteria, then something is really wrong at this TARGET store. We were not asking for thousands of dollars, not even hundreds, just a small sponsorship for a memorial remembrance.As a follow-up, I emailed the TARGET U.S. Corporate Headquarters and their response was the same. That’s their National policy!!! Then I looked into the company further. They will not allow
The Marines to collect for Toys for Tots’ at any of their Stores. And during the recent Iraq deployment,they would not allow families of employees who were called up for active duty to continue
their insurance coverage while they were on military service.Then as I dig further, TARGET is a French-owned corporation. Now, I’m thinking again. If TARGET cannot support American or Canadian Veterans, then why should my family and I support their Stores by spending our hard earned American or Canadian dollars in their stores??? And, have their profits sent to France.Without the American and Canadian Vets, where would France be today?
They, most likely would be speaking German and trading in Deutsch Marks.Sincerely,Dick Forrey
Veterans Helping Veteransps:Please send this on to everyone you know to let Target know we don’t need them either! we’re all in a position to reduce sales to these stores as soon as this gets around….SO THERE IS POWER IN THE PEN AND THE COMPUTER EMAILS!!

Now, this all took me about 15 minutes to check out and write up. It’s not a full scale investigation, but it gives you a good idea of how important it is to do your homework before spreading misinformation.
