Just ask any kiddo and they’ll probably know exactly how many hours and minutes until school’s out for the summer. That means there will be plenty of munchkins out and about. But not all of that free time is so great. Each year way too many youngsters end up overdoing and/or having accidents that result in everything from bandages to emergency room runs.
To cut down on those “oops”, Kohl has once again stepped with a donation to Children’s Medical Center Foundation for its “Play Well Stay Well Program.” This year’s contribution is a whopping $330,817 that brings its financial backing of the program since 2001 to a tidy $4.3M.
“The Play Well Stay Well Program” is designed to provide families with information on “how to lead a healthy, safe and active lifestyle.”
According to Children’s Health System of Texas President/CEO, Christopher Durovich, “We greatly appreciate Kohl’s for its continued generosity to Children’s. The company’s dedication and support of healthy recreation and wellness has been of great importance in advancing our mission of making life better for children.”
The funding is the result of the Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program where Kohl sells $5 books and plush toys with 100% of the net profits benefit children’s health programs nationwide.
