Give With Target

Dear John Long Parents and Guardians,

Last year, the students, staff, families, and community of John Long Middle School gathered together and worked very hard to collect donations for the Pack’er Up Challenge, sponsored by Goodwill Industries of Wisconsin.  In the end, JLMS came out victorious in more ways than one, and donated a total of 78,022 to benefit the amazing Goodwill mission.  John Long won the opportunity to have retired Green Bay Packer star and Superbowl Champion, Donald Driver visit the school in a very special celebration.  It was a great and moving experience for everyone involved.  A month and day that we will all remember for years to come.

In the spirit of giving back and doing good, John Long is inspired by the good work of Mr. Donald Driver, and continue to follow his positive mission.  Currently Donald is at it again!  Donald’s new venture is partnered up with the Target Corporation.

Donald, along with country singer Luke Bryan, actress Sophia Bush, Olympic gold-medalist Gabrielle Douglas, and TV personality La La Anthony, have joined Target in their "Give With Target" Campaign to raise money for K-12 schools throughout the country.

According to the Campaign’s Official Website, "Beginning August 14th, visitors to Target’s Facebook page cast votes for the K-12 school of their choice via the Give with Target app. Once a school has received 25 votes, Target will donate $1 per vote, with a maximum donation of $10,000 per school until September 21, or until the full $5 million has been allocated."

*It’s simple to help in this one-of-a-kind cause.

  1. Next, all you do it type in “John Long Middle School, Grafton” and click “vote” to put your vote in for John Long.For every vote, Target will donate $1 to John Long!
  2. You can vote once a week, until September 21st.
  3. It’s that easy!So let’s get voting John Long!As Donald would say, “Vote, vote, vote!”

 "At the end of the campaign, the school that reaches 10,000 votes first or receives the highest number of votes will get a special celebration, including appearances by members of the Give With Target “Class of 2013,” a live musical performance and more."

It’s great to see Donald continuing to partner up doing amazing things, helping people!  What a great way to start another school year!  We love Donald and his work and we will continue to be inspired by him every day!
