Kohl's donates more than $14,600 to Youth Diabetes Care Network
Kohlís Department Stores recently donated $14,683 to SoutheastHEALTH Foundation and Kohlís Youth Diabetes Care Network, a service of the Southeast Diabetes Center.
Kohlís commitment is made possible through Kohlís Caresģ merchandise program. Through this initiative, Kohlís sells $5 childrenís books and plush toys. All of the net profits from such sales benefit childrenís health and education programs nationwide.
Kohlís annually donates to the Youth Diabetes Care Network, which aids children in the region who have diabetes. Services include everything from Camp DAY Break (Diabetes And Youth) to diabetes emergency training for school staff in the region. Other services include a grandparent/caregiver workshop for those caring for children with diabetes, medic-alert identification, safe transportation of diabetes supplies, resources for teens with diabetes, public awareness and diabetes prevention education and inpatient diabetes education.
SoutheastHEALTH Foundation Executive Director Patti Ranzini says, ďOn behalf of SoutheastHEALTH Foundation, I want to thank Kohlís and everyone who purchased an item from the Kohlís Cares program. These donations really do help kids close to home. Camp DAY Break provides a wonderful service to young people with diabetes by combining fun camp activities with meaningful learning experiences that help them learn how to live well with diabetes.Ē
Since 2006, Kohlís has donated more than $160,000 to the SoutheastHEALTH Foundation and Youth Diabetes Care Network.
