Kohl's donates $33K to Valdosta area kids

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Kohl's Department Stores has donated $33,204 to South Georgia Medical Center's Foundation, through the Kohl's Cares® cause merchandise program.

The donations were collected from Kohl's stores located in the Valdosta area. Kohl's has gifted $208,554 to SGMC's Foundation since 2007.  

"Kohl's has been a dedicated supporter of children's hospitals and children's health across the country. We are very fortunate to have such a great partner here in Valdosta," said Elizabeth Vickers, South Georgia Medical Center's Foundation Director.   

Through the Kohl's/SGMC Foundation partnership, a program called "Connecting Kids" addresses children's health and wellness issues. This year, Connecting Kids will promote healthy and wellness by supporting the Boys and Girls Club "Triple Play" program.

Kohl's Cares® funding will be distributed to this community organization for purchase of equipment and materials for the "Triple Play" after school program.

 

Additional programs funded by the Kohl's Cares® grant in 2014 include the Bike Smart bike safety rodeo planned for April 26 and a Kids Safety media campaign during the summer months.
