Local residents can vote to provide every school in Braintree – from and middle schools to all six elementary schools and even and – with Target gift cards by way of an online contest that lasts through early next month.
By logging onto the Facebook page for Give with Target, anyone can search by school or area to find their hometown schools and then click "Vote Now." For every 25 votes that a school receives, that school will be sent a $25 gift card from Target – up to $10,000 each.
Target is planning to donate up to $2.5 million in gift cards before the contest ends on Sept. 8, 2012, and another $2.5 million in grants for "in-need" K-12 schools.
Once a user clicks "Vote Now" they are then prompted to log into Target's app via their Facebook account. Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. on Sept. 8.
