Kohl’s Cares pumps more than $21 million into hospital programs

Menomonee Falls-based Kohl’s Corp. spread more than $21 million among 164 hospitals across the country last year, the company announced on Tuesday.

Donations stemmed from the Kohl’s Cares Hospital Program, a 15-year-old program that benefits children’s health and wellness initiatives with funds generated through the Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program.

The Kohl’s Cares Hospital Program functions to “meet the unique needs of communities nationwide with customized programming and public events that provide important services and information at no cost to thousands of families every year,” Bevin Bailis, Kohl’s senior vice president of communications and public relations, said in an announcement.

“We are inspired by what our hospital partners accomplish in the communities where we live and work and are proud to join forces to keep children healthy and well,” Bailis said.

Hospital outreach programs address a spectrum of children’s health issues, such as injury prevention, childhood obesity and asthma awareness.

Among Kohl’s hospital partners is Milwaukee-based Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
