Target Corporation received CWLA's Corporate Friend of Children Award in 2003 after being nominated by NBA Colorado Christian Home-Tennyson Center for Children and Families, a CWLA member agency in Denver. In Denver alone, Target supported more than three dozen organizations and worthwhile causes, giving in excess of half a million dollars in 2002. Rosemarie Felton, Store Team Leader and Grants Captain, was present at CWLA's 2003 National Conference to accept this award on behalf of Target Corporation.
