Spring volunteer challenge empowers children and families nationwide to live healthy lives.
As the destination for active and wellness, we challenged our associates to participate in volunteer events focused on inspiring communities across the country to make healthy choices, get active and be well. From a wellness fair in Milwaukee, Wis. and cleaning local beaches in Beaverton, Ore., to nearly 200 volunteer hours of service with our partners in Under Armour’s hometown of Baltimore, Md., associates showed up in large numbers to give back.
The results are in – and they are impressive! More than 15,000 associates gave their time and talent in the communities where we live and work, resulting in the completion of nearly 6,000 volunteer events in just six weeks. That’s nearly 100,000 volunteer hours and approximately 140 events per day. In recognition of associate efforts, Kohl’s donated nearly $6 million to more than 2,500 nonprofits across the country.
Kohl’s volunteer program is one component of the company’s overall philanthropic platform, Kohl’s Cares, which includes the Kohl’s Cares Hospital Program and Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise.
