 MICHIGAN GIVING TOTALS NEARLY $300,000 IN JANUARY FROM HUDSON'S,
 MERVYN'S, TARGET AND PARENT DAYTON HUDSON
 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 12, /PRNewswire/ -- Dayton Hudson Corporation (NYSE: DH) and its Michigan operations -- Hudson's, Mervyn's and Target -- made grants totaling $298,000 in Michigan in January. Total corporate-wide giving in Michigan was $2.1 million during the fiscal year 1991 ended Feb. 1, 1992.
 "We believe in investing in the health and creativity of the Michigan communities we serve. Contributing to social action and arts programming has never been more important," said Kenneth A. Macke, chairman and chief executive officer.
 Leading the Michigan arts grants made in January was a $30,000 grant to The Arts League of Michigan, which has established The Arts Incubator in collaboration with Wayne State University's Center for Urban Studies. The Arts Incubator, a center designed to assist African-American arts organizations with management and marketing training and expertise, is the first program of its kind in the nation.
 Arts grants also were made to support the multicultural programming of the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Progress in Dearborn ($15,000), the "Target Family Danceabout" series of the Detroit Dance Collective ($10,000), the "Coming to America: A Celebration of American Music" concert series of the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra ($10,000), and The Battle Creek Art Center's "Art Trek" educational program for fourth grade students ($8,500). Other grants went to help underwrite public television's "Great Performances" series in Detroit and Grand Rapids ($42,500).
 Michigan social action programs receiving grants in January included services for at-risk Detroit Public School students who have completed Metropolitan Detroit Youth Foundation programs and wish to pursue college education ($20,000).
 Also receiving a grant were the Michigan Educational Opportunity Fund's "Si Si Puede" parent training program for parents of high-risk urban Hispanic students in Flint and Grand Rapids ($6,600), parenting education provided by the Merrill-Palmer Institute ($10,000), and the counseling and support programs for victims of family violence provided by Port Huron's Blue Water Mental Health and Child Guidance Clinic ($5,000).
 Nationwide, total Dayton Hudson giving in fiscal 1991 was $27.1 million. Since 1946, Dayton Hudson Corporation has consistently contributed 5 percent of its federally taxable annual income to strengthen communities where its stores are located. Social action and arts programs each account for at least 40 percent of total annual giving, while the remaining giving responds to emerging community needs.
 As one of the nation's largest retailers with 770 stores nationwide and 62 in Michigan, Dayton Hudson Corporation serves customers through upscale discount stores and moderate-price and high fashion/full-service department stores.
