The Target Corp. and The Heart of America Foundation unveiled a state-of-the-art library and Target Meals for Minds food pantry at Roosevelt Elementary School in Santa Ana. As part of the 2012 Target School Library Makeover program, which includes plans to give more than $12 million to support education, the retailer will unveil new libraries at a total of 32 in-need elementary schools across the country. In addition, Target will award a $15,000 reading grant to the John Adams Elementary School in Santa Ana that previously received a library makeover.

“The new library and food pantry are amazing gifts for our school and our students,” said Dennis McGeeney, principal, Roosevelt Elementary School. “Thanks to Target and The Heart of America Foundation, our students have the resources they need to feel inspired and ready to learn when they walk through our school doors.”

The new library at Roosevelt Elementary School features 2,000 new books, furniture, carpet and shelves, and a complete technology upgrade including new iPads. The program also provides seven books for each student to take home following the unveiling celebration.

“At Target, we understand that a quality education is integral to the success of a child’s future,” said Laysha Ward, president of community relations, Target. “Through the Target School Library Makeover program, we aim to pave a path to graduation for more U.S. students by equipping them with the resources they need to excel in the classroom and beyond.”

In an effort to combat hunger and its impact on learning, the Target Meals for Mind food pantry will provide monthly distributions of fresh produce and staple foods to students and their families. The food pantry is made possible through a partnership with the Food Bank of Orange County.

“Since 2007, our partnership with the Target School Library Makeover program has helped to turn more than 100 dilapidated libraries into vibrant centers of learning,” said Angie Halamandaris, president and co-founder of The Heart of America Foundation. “This year, we are proud to continue our partnership with Target. By revitalizing/transforming 32 school libraries across the country we are helping to create new spaces that inspire students, parents and community members to love reading.”
