As kids get ready to return to the classroom this fall, Target REDcardSM holders can help patients at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with their back-to-school purchases.

By selecting St. Jude through Target's Take Charge of Education® initiative, families and community members have an easy way to support the St. Jude school with each purchase using your Target REDcard.

Every time you use your REDcard, Target gives up to 1 percent of the purchase price to the school of your choice*—money the school can use however it wants. REDcard holders can enroll in the program by simply visiting and clicking "enroll." In the fields, enter: ST JUDE SCHOOL, MEMPHIS, TN 38105 or enter the St. Jude ID: 126789.

Cardholders also can call 1-800-316-6142 to enroll in Take Charge of Education and support the St. Jude school program.

Money raised for St. Jude through the program will go to support the hospital's school program, where patients are able to continue their studies while away from the classroom.

For children undergoing treatment of life-threatening illnesses, school can provide a sense of normal routine as well as a connection with the outside world.

St. Jude provides patients with two classrooms and full-time teachers licensed by the State of Tennessee to teach K-12 so that patients can keep up with their school work and not fall behind.

Take Charge of Education embraces Target's commitment to education and is designed to enhance educational efforts for children, including St. Jude patients, in communities across the country.
