Kohl’s Donates $210K To Cohen Children’s Medical Center

Cohen Children’s Medical Center was awarded a grant of $210,998 from Kohl’s through its Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program. Presented at the medical center during the annual Children & Healthcare Week fair, the Kohl’s donation to Cohen will support the Kohl’s Cares Keeping Kids Healthy Program, a community-wide nutrition and physical activity program that works to improve children’s overall health and wellness. Since 2000, Kohl’s has donated more than $4.4 million to Cohen.

“We are extremely grateful to Kohl’s for their extraordinary support of the children’s hospital for the last 17 years,” said Debbie Riccardi, DNP, RN, director of community outreach at Cohen. “The partnership between Cohen and Kohl’s helps us strengthen our involvement with the community to help educate children, families, schools and other groups about health and wellness.”

More than 100 second graders from the E.M. Baker Elementary School in Great Neck participated in the hands-on health fair, visiting tables staffed by doctors, nurses and other clinicians. The event covered a wide range of topics, including the operating room, listening to the heart with a stethoscope, helmet safety, dental care and injury prevention. It also included a tour of an ambulance and a presentation on healthy eating. Held in the hospital’s lobby, the health fair showcased Kohl’s Cares Keeping Kids Healthy Program. During Children & Healthcare Week, Cohen hosted more than 600 elementary school children who participated in the kids’ health fair.

Kohl’s commitment to Cohen Children’s Medical Center is made possible through the Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program. Through this initiative, Kohl’s sells $5 books and plush toys, with 100 percent of net profit benefiting children. Visit www.kohls.com/cares for more information.
