I refuse to shop at Target since they banned the SA.Thankfully my local supermarket,part of a small local chain,has them out front.Whenever I pass I put in a few dollars.

Target’s Salvation Army ban had nothing to do with pressure from gays. It was done at the recommendation of their legal counsel to keep the company union-free. (If you allow the SA to solicit on your property a union could go to court and demand the same access. Non-solicitation policies have to be blanket and non-discriminatory.)

Their ban extends to all groups and is across the board for legal reasons.
A few years ago I worked at Target. Target corporate donated over $1 million directly to the SA from proceeds on a SA tree ornament (all proceeds); I believe they do this every year.
We all have reasons for not liking Target or whoever, but I don't think this reason is valid in itself, JMO.
