Items for sale included children’s books, toys, holiday music, a calendar, a notecard set and a holiday-themed cookbook.

Additionally, for every Kohl’s Cares purchase made on Tuesday, the company donated$1 to Toys for Tots – up to a total of $100,000.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the season of giving by donating nearly $6 million to children across the country, and we know our customers will be excited to hear their purchase of Kohl’s Cares items on Giving Tuesday will give to those in need through our partnership with Toys for Tots,” Bevin Bailis, Kohl’s senior vice president of communications and public relations, said in a statement.
