Kohl's donates $1.5 million to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin for safety program
announced a $1.5 million donation to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin from Kohl’s Cares, the company’s philanthropic platform, to fund the Kohl’s Cares Grow Safe & Healthy program. The program is designed to make Wisconsin kids and families aware of safety risks in and out of their homes. “Kohl’s is proud to continue our partnership with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Together, we are working to educate Wisconsin children and families about injury prevention to create a safer, healthier community.” The Kohl’s Cares Grow Safe & Healthy program will present age-relevant information to remind Wisconsin families that injury prevention is important at all ages. “With Kohl’s generous $1.5 million donation, we are honored to continue our long-standing partnership and joint commitment to the Milwaukee community,” said Bridget Clementi, director of community health, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. “Our work together allows us to develop fun and educational programs for the kids and families in our area.” The donation is funded through the Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program, which sells special merchandise, including plush toys and books, and donates 100 percent of the net profit to benefit children’s health and education initiatives nationwide. Since 2000, Kohl’s Department Stores together with Kohl’s Cares have combined to give more than $55 million to support charitable initiatives in the metro-Milwaukee area, including more than $8.3 million to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to help improve the health and safety of Wisconsin children.]]>
