 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Dayton Hudson Corporation (NYSE: DH) and its operations in Texas -- Target, Mervyn's and Marshall Field's -- made grants totaling $187,450 in January. Total corporate- wide giving in Texas was $1.7 million in the fiscal year 1991 ended Feb. 2, 1992.
 "We believe in investing in the health and creativity of the Texas communities we serve. Contributing to social action and arts programming has never been more important," said Kenneth A. Macke, chairman and chief executive officer.
 Social action grants made during January included a $50,000, two- year challenge grant on behalf of Target to support statewide family and child services provided by the Texas Coalition for the Prevention of Child Abuse.
 Another major grant of $55,000 on behalf of Mervyn's went to the Communities in Schools program to support summer enrichment activities at schools throughout the state.
 The child development services for Hispanic children provided by The American Institute for Learning received a $25,000 grant in January. Marshall Field's provided $14,000 for follow-up counseling services for high-school-age graduates of the Dallas CAN Academy. Grants also went to the Safe Family program provided through the New Beginning Center of Garland ($10,000) and the family services offered by Fort Worth's Parenting Guidance Center ($10,000).
 Arts grants given during January in Texas included sponsorship of the 1992 Kids' Block activities at the Houston International Festival ($20,000), support for the Black Cultural Awareness Series of the Dallas Black Dance Theatre ($10,000), and the Family Outreach Program of the Dallas Children's Theater, Inc. ($10,000). Grants also went to the production of "Alice in Wonderland" of the Casa Manana Theatre ($6,000), and the Festival of the Arts at the Miller Outdoor Theatre ($4,000).
 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.
