Oh, it just keeps getting worse and worse for Target: WorldNetDaily: Wal-Mart’s Salvation Army save. “Breaking news late Thursday: Wal-Mart announced that it will nationally match dollar for dollar the proceeds of all Salvation Army red kettles beginning Thursday through Christmas Eve.”
Update: Here is a Target Corporation’s Position on Solicitation at Stores:
Target Corporation provides generous support to communities in many ways, donating more than $2 million each week to neighborhoods, programs and schools across the country. Nationwide, our team members volunteer hundreds of thousands of hours to nonprofit organizations. Target Corporation is committed to giving back to the communities in which we do business.
Such a good corporation, with such a bad PR contingency plan on this one issue. Sad to watch. But, it will blow over in a few weeks, I imagine.
