Kohl's to Celebrate $725,000 Donation to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin with Help of Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Jordy Nelson

Wednesday, May 9, 2012 9:00 AM


Kohl’s Department Stores is donating $725,000 to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to support children’s health and education initiatives. Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson will join in the announcement tomorrow at a family safety event at Kohl’s Southridge Mall. The event highlights Kohl’s Cares®: The Great Safety Adventure®, a mobile health education unit designed to help reduce the number of childhood injuries at home. The donation comes from the Kohl's Carescause merchandise program, which sells special books and plush toys and donates 100 percent of the net profit to benefit children's health and education initiatives nationwide.

“Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin is pleased to partner with Kohl’s to present Kohl’s Cares: The Great Safety Adventure to teach kids and families how to be safe at home,” said Bridget Clementi, director of community health, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. “One in four children each year suffers injuries at home that are serious enough to require medical attention - this translates into more than 14 million children a year. The Great Safety Adventure is a unique tool to educate children to be safe.”

Kohl’s Cares: The Great Safety Adventurewill introduce local families to Rover, the Home Safety Hound, and his Safety Rangers as they explore a retrofitted semitrailer designed to represent a 1,200-square-foot home. This fun, interactive tour is dedicated to educating parents and children about the five leading safety risks found inside and outside the home: falls, poisoning, fire and burns, choking and suffocation, and drowning.

According to Safe Kids USA, injury is the leading cause of death in children ages one to 14 in Wisconsin and the United States. The tour provides life-saving information about home safety for school-age children in kindergarten throughfourth grade.

“Kohl’s is committed to kids health and education nationwide,” said Julie Gardner, Kohl’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “We are proud to give back to the communities we serve with best-in-class health and education programs like the Kohl’s Cares: The Great Safety Adventure right here in Wisconsin. This program allows kids and families to learn important home safety tips in a fun, engaging and memorable way.”

Since 2000, Kohl’s has donated more than $6.7 million to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to support youth health and education programming.
