Target says it will provide the Minneapolis-St. Paul area with first aid equipment and essentials to help the community.

Target chairman and CEO Brian Cornell said the retailer would be donating “truckloads of first aid equipment and medicine, bottled water, baby formula, diapers and other essentials to help ensure that no one within the areas of heaviest damage and demonstration is cut off from needed supplies,” in a letter to team members, guests and the community.

Target is working towards reopening affected stores and staff who have been impacted by store closures will be able to work at other locations and will be paid for their scheduled hours up to 14 days.

Target has also vowed to have conversations with community members and officials to learn how to support a community while it heals.

“We are a community in pain. That pain is not unique to the Twin Cities — it extends across America. The murder of George Floyd has unleashed the pent-up pain of years, as have the killings of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor,” said Cornell.

“We say their names and hold a too-long list of others in our hearts. As a Target team, we’ve huddled, we’ve consoled, we’ve witnessed horrific scenes similar to what’s playing out now and wept that not enough is changing. And as a team we’ve vowed to face pain with purpose.”
