We all know that Kohl’s is great stop when you’re looking for a bargain. However, Kohl’s can also be a wonderful place to shop if you’d like your purchase to benefit someone in your own community. We were reminded of this when we stopped by a Kohl’s in Blue Bell, PA for a dumpster delivery.
Through the initiative known as “Kohl’s Cares,” the corporation fulfills philanthropic goals in the communities where its stores are located. The main focuses include children’s health and education, environmentally friendly solutions, and women’s health. In addition, Kohl’s employees take part in “Associates in Action” and volunteer time locally to better the community.
At this point in the year, the Kohl’s Cares Cause Merchandise program is especially important as 100% of the net profits benefit children nationwide. From now until September, plush toys and books can be purchased in-store or online for just $5 and will go toward injury prevention, nutrition, immunization, and a variety of other beneficial programs in your community. Since 2000, the Kohl’s Cares Cause Merchandise program has raised $257 million nationwide.
In addition to selling merchandise, Kohl’s Cares also offers discounted fundraising gift cards for school and youth nonprofits to sell and benefit from. They also partner with local hospitals to keep kids educated about maintaining their own health.
