Kohl’s backs kid safety program

By
From page A3 | September 13, 2013 |

A $233,774 grant from Kohl’s department stores will go toward a UC Davis program providing car seats, bicycle helmets, life jackets and safety education to children from underserved families.

Last year, the UCD Kohl’s Buckle Up to Grow Up program gave more than 1,300 car seats, 6,100 bicycle helmets and 395 life jackets to underserved families throughout the region. Since 2005, Kohl’s has donated more than $1.9 million to the UC Davis Children’s Hospital, according to a news release.

Kohl’s generates the funding it provides through the Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program, selling $5 books and plush toys, with 100 percent of $231 million in net profit benefiting children’s health and education programs nationwide.

UCD works with community partners, including family resource centers, area school districts and community centers to distribute the safety items.
