DAYTON HUDSON, TARGET, MERVYN'S RECEIVE HONORS FOR THE FAMILY-TO-FAMILY CHILD CARE INITIATIVE

 DAYTON HUDSON, TARGET, MERVYN'S RECEIVE HONORS
 FOR THE FAMILY-TO-FAMILY CHILD CARE INITIATIVE
 MINNEAPOLIS, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Dayton Hudson Corporation (NYSE: DH) and its Target and Mervyn's stores have been honored by the National Council of Jewish Women for the Family-to-Family Child Care Initiative. The Corporation and Target also were recently recognized in resolutions by Ohio Governor George V. Voinovich, Kentucky Governor Brereton C. Jones and the Kentucky General Assembly.
 Family-to-Family is a nationwide program designed to improve the quality of family child care. It was developed by Mervyn's and Dayton Hudson in 1988, and Target expanded the effort in 1990. The program develops partnerships with local nonprofit agencies to recruit, train and accredit family child care providers.
 Since it was established, Family-to-Family has received many awards, including the White House Private Sector Initiative citation and recognition by the California Child Development Administrators and the Tucson Association for the Education of Young Children.
 "We believe investments in quality child care help build a stronger and
more productive society. Family-to-Family has shown that training and accreditation can help family child care providers create the caring, stimulating environments parents want for their children," said Robert Ulrich, Target's chairman and chief executive officer.
 "The corporate philosophy and dedication to community giving by Target and the Dayton Hudson Corporation is uncommon both in our international business climate, and in this era of lifestyles devoted to the promotion of personal gain," said the Kentucky General Assembly's resolution.
 Family-to-Family is active in 31 communities in 16 states where Dayton Hudson has stores. To date, more than 4,800 family child care providers have been trained nationwide. These providers offer quality child care to an estimated 25,000 children annually. Family child care is the most used -- and least regulated -- form of child care in the United States.
 Since 1946, Dayton Hudson has contributed five percent of its federally taxable income annually to social action and arts programs in the communities in which it operates. The corporation is America's fourth largest general merchandise retailer and operates 770 Target, Mervyn's, Dayton's, Hudson's and Marshall Field's stores in 33 states.
