OnTarget Volunteer Force in Action for Plano Public Library

OnTarget Partners believes in giving back.

One of our core values is “doing well, and doing good”.  As our business performs, and our owners and employees prosper, we want to give back to our local community.

About five years ago, we started volunteering for the Friends of the Plano Public Library book sale.  Last year, the five Plano libraries checked out over 4.7 million items, had in excess of 1.5 million visits, and welcomed more than 140,000 people to free programs.  In the last decade, Friends have gifted almost $1 million to enhance the libraries with special programs and educational entertainment, eBooks and EMagazines, science kits, ESL and world language materials, and thousands of books.

Recently, the Friends purchased a new outreach van, #morethanbooks, which increases library visibility to non-users and to underserved communities across Plano.

OnTarget is proud to partner with such a great organization and with such great people!
