VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –You can buy toys and books from kohls to help kids live a healthy life. The South Georgia Medical Center Foundation got more than $46,000 through the Kohl's Care program.

The foundation then distributed the money to elementary, middle, and private schools across Lowndes County. The grants will purchase P.E. Equipment and tools to teach kids about healthy lifestyles.

"I hope they'll use it to help the kids learn about nutrition, exercise and keep them healthy because that's what we need to do for the future," said Diane Rodgers, the Khol's Valdosta store manager.

When you buy the $5 books and toys from Kohl's a hundred percent of the net profit benefit children.
