I agree that it's annoying

but look at it this way - at least the cause is something good. It's not like they're raising money for the KKK or Aryan nation.
I've seen some "solicitors" (not necessarily employees) at other stores who aggressively pursue customers in their quest for donations. If that's the case, then you are absolutely right that it needs to stop. But I don't see anything wrong with them setting a goal for the staff to reach and showing with pride those employees who are making a difference.
Personally, I'd rather be pestered for Breast Cancer Research money than hit up for political or religious donations.
Look at it this way. Target is far worse about pushing those stupid Red Cards/Target Visas and that doesn't help anybody!
