Kohl’s to Celebrate $725,000 Donation to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin with the Help of Green Bay Packers Safety and Super Bowl Champ Nick Collins

Kohl’s Department Stores is donating $725,000 to support Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin with the launch of Kohl’s Cares®: The Great Safety Adventure®, a new mobile health education unit designed to help reduce the number of childhood injuries at home. Super Bowl champ and Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins will join in the announcement tomorrow at a family safety event at Kohl’s store in West Allis, Wis. The donation comes from the Kohl's Cares® cause merchandise program, which sells special merchandise and donates 100 percent of the net profit to benefit children's health and education initiatives nationwide.

“Children’s Hospital is so grateful to have a partner like Kohl’s that cares about the safety of children in our community,” said Bridget Clementi, director of community health, Children’s Hospital and Health System. “Kohl’s Cares®: The Great Safety Adventure® will be a vital component to our community outreach programs.”

Kohl’s Cares: The Great Safety Adventure features a semitrailer retrofitted to represent a 1,200-square-foot home dedicated to home safety. During the tour of the life-sized house, parents and their children learn how to prevent injuries resulting from the five leading risks found inside and outside the home. These include falls, poisoning, fires and burns, choking and suffocation, and drowning.

According to the Home Safety Council, injury is the No. 1 cause of death for children ages 1 to 14 in the United States and in Wisconsin. The Home Safety Council also reveals that an average of 2,096 children younger than 15 die each year as a result of an unintentional home injury.

“At Kohl’s, we are very dedicated to children in our community,” said Julie Gardner, Kohl’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “We feel it is our responsibility to give back to the communities we serve as much as we can by supporting kids’ health and education initiatives nationwide, including best-in-class programs like the Kohl’s Cares: The Great Safety Adventure right here in our own hometown.”

The initiative is supported by the Kohl’s Cares® philanthropic program focused on improving the lives of children. Kohl’s Cares® benefits children’s health and education initiatives nationwide through its cause merchandise program, annual scholarship program, fundraising gift cards and the Associates in Action program.

Children’s Hospital has partnered with Kohl’s since 2000. Since then, Kohl’s has donated more than $6 million to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and related entities. In that same time, Kohl’s and the Kohl’s Cares program have combined to give approximately $38 million to support charitable initiatives in the metro Milwaukee area.

Nick Collins

A fan favorite, Nick Collins earned an indelible mark in NFL history with an interception and touchdown in Super Bowl XLV, taking the Green Bay Packers to a 14-0 lead. Collins’ career features numerous firsts and accomplishments, including becoming the first Packers safety to earn back-to-back Pro Bowl honors since LeRoy Butler (1996-98), leading all NFL safeties with 13 interceptions since 2008 and leading the league with 405 interception return yards during that span. In 2008, Collins returned three interceptions for touchdowns, becoming the first NFL safety to do so since Kansas City’s Lloyd Burruss in 1986.
