(KWTX) Target announced Friday it’s investing $300 million to give both full- and part-time employees $2 raises through at least May 2 and providing paid leave for workers 65 or older and those who have underlying medical conditions that could put them at greater risk from the new coronavirus.

The company is also providing bonus payouts and relief fund contributions.

“The commitments we’re making today will provide additional resources for our most valuable asset—our team—and additional contributions will help support the critical work of our partners in communities impacted by the coronavirus,” Target CEO Brian Cornell said.

The company will also contribute to local, state, national and global foundations supporting nonprofit organizations addressing the greatest needs in their areas.
