Preventing the predictable

Most unintentional injuries and deaths, such as those that result from not using a seat belt or drinking and driving, are preventable. The goal of our program is to identify and as much as possible eliminate the causes of preventable injury: unsafe behaviors, conditions and environments. 

Kohl's Cares supports UC Davis Children's Hospital trauma prevention

Kohl's grants more than $202,000 for children's injury prevention at UC Davis Children's Hospital.

 Kohl's Cares

“We believe in giving back to the communities we serve, not just with money and resources but also with talent and time. Through our community giving and volunteer program, we support kids' health and education, environmental initiatives nationwide and women's health in Wisconsin, specifically the fight against breast cancer. We envision a future where kids are healthy and resources are plentiful, because the way we see it, giving back also means looking ahead.

Healthy kids, happy kids! Kohl's partners with more than 160 hospitals nationwide to help educate kids and their parents about topics such as injury prevention, healthy lifestyle, immunization, asthma and infant care. We support community outreach programs focused on issues affecting kids and work with our hospital partners to tailor the programs based on their community's individual needs”.

The Kohl’s Buckle Up To Grow Up program is funded through the sale of special Kohl’s Cares books and plush toys, which are available for purchase for only $5, at any Kohl’s Department store.
