Target Corporation presented $15,000 in grants from its corporate "Power of One" grant program to The University of Arizona on September 9, 2002. $5000 each was awarded to The University of Arizona Career Services Office, the Southwest Retail Center, and the Eller College of Business and Public Administration's Undergraduate Career Resource Center.
The gift to the Eller College will be used to enhance the College's new Undergraduate Career Resource Center. "The Career Resource Center is a new initiative for our undergraduate students and this grant gets us off to a good start," said Julie Miranda, director of Student Enrichment and Career Development.
The "Power of One" grant program signifies the corporate collaboration of Target, Mervyn's and Marshall Field's Department Stores and their commitment to the communities they serve.
Dan Eggers, district team leader for Target, and Mervyn's Campus Relations Representatives Johanna Durr and Angela Wong presented the gift commitments.
