Retail store Kohl’s will donate 5 million dollars to help communities in need this holiday season. The donation will be awarded as grants to more than 100 nonprofit organizations across the US. The grant is funded through Kohl’s A Community with Heart program. Kohl’s associates across the country nominated and identified local nonprofits whose focus is to “make a difference for families” in their communities. They will surprise these nonprofits with a grant Kohl’s philanthropic merchandise program, Kohl’s Cares®, which sells children’s books and toys and donates 100 percent of the net profit to charitable organizations nationwide that improve the health and wellness of families.
According to Greg Revelle, Kohl’s chief marketing officer:
We know that this year has been challenging for so many, including the nonprofit organizations all across the country that serve their local communities, and this holiday season we are honored to be able to celebrate those that give with all their heart.
We’re proud of our Kohl’s associates and their commitment to the communities they serve, and thank them for their many efforts to inspire and empower families by giving back.”
The grants will go to more than 100 nonprofits across 49 states. They will receive grants ranging from $10,000 to $100,000.
