Raising money for schools is an ongoing chore, but a national chain retailer is giving schools an opportunity to raise thousands with a few mouse clicks.
Target stores is running a Give With Target promotion through Sept. 8 that gives eligible schools the chance to raise $10,000 by clicking a button.
Eligible schools will receive a $25 Target GiftCard for every 25 online votes it receives during the promotion period; up to a maximum of $10,000.
Here's how to play: Choose a K-12 school from Target's Facebook Page and click a button to vote for it weekly through Sept. 8 or when $2.5 million in Target GiftCards have been awarded, whichever occurs first.
Here's how Levittown schools have fared so far in the contest:
