At the beginning of the school year, you may remember that we announced a program with Target that makes it easy for individuals to support our school. If you have a Target REDcard, Target will donate 1% of what you spend on any item right back to Bishop Brady High School. As of October 22, we have 38 people signed up, meaning that we are only 12 away from our goal of 50 by the holiday season!
If you don't already have a REDcard, you can apply for a Target credit or debit card; both have the same benefits. Please encourage friends and family members to also designate Brady as their school. It's easy to sign up. Simply complete the three fields in the first column titled "Sign me up." Next, enter your name and REDcard number to designate Bishop Brady as your school. Thank you for your support!
