Customers who want to donate to the Kohl's Cares for Kids Foundation can purchase the special Kohl's Cares items from the store, mentions Kohl's Corporation. The money from these sales all goes to organizations like schools and hospitals, which Kohl's becomes partners with.
The merchandise includes books, stuffed animals and other kids items that are all sold for the same price. Customers can either buy the items at a local Kohl's or get it from the Kohl's website. There is also a fundraising gift card program organizations can use to raise money for Kohl's Cares, and customers can purchase these gift cards as a way to donate.
Some examples of causes for which the donations go include healthy eating and exercise programs at local schools and safety programs for health-affiliated organizations. For example, Kohl's partners with the Injury Free Coalition for Kids of Rochester to hold a community festival where kids and their families can learn to bike safely, visit a health fair and learn how to properly use helmets. In addition, Kohl's partners with the Children's Hospital at The University of Oklahoma to offer bike safety training along with car seat inspections, pedestrian safety lessons and all-terrain vehicle safety training, notes The University of Oklahoma. Kohl's Cares also features a scholarship program for children.
