Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta thanks Kohl's Department Stores and its associates for their tremendous ongoing support. Children's has partnered with Kohl's through its Kohl's Cares® program to raise money to fund important initiatives including the Back-to-School Fair, the Kohl's Activity Center located on the third floor of Children's Scottish Rite campus, the Kohl's School Nurse Liaison/Consultant Program and most recently the Kohl's Healthy Halls School Wellness Program. The Kohl's Healthy Halls School Wellness Program is a new initiative created with Children's Strong4Life movement. The program teaches nutrition and physical activity prinicples to elementary school children through a school assembly and resources for students, paretns, teachers and school staff.
During the back-to-school, holiday, spring and summer seasons, Kohl's 24 Atlanta-area locations offer special items for sale, with 100 percent of the net profits donated to Children's. Since 2001, Kohl's has contributed an amazing $3,884,524 to Children's to make life a little easier for the patients and families we serve.
Special Items from Kohl's
"As a not-for-profit organization, Children's relies on our community for support," said Scott Hodoval, Vice President, Development at Children's. "We are proud to partner with such a wonderfully philanthropic company as Kohl's and help them promote these truly affordable products which are offered in their stores."
A continually changing variety of family-friendly books, plush characters and music CDs highlight the special items offered each season from Kohl's. Each item is sold for $5 at Kohl's stores and online while supplies last. One hundred percent of the net profits from the sale of this merchandise goes to benefit health and educational programs in the communities Kohl's serves.
"We're truly excited to feature these wonderful products," said Julie Gardner, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Kohl's. "These books build self-esteem and confidence in their young readers. We are proud to support such an important initiative and promote literacy through the Kohl's Cares® program."
