The Children's Hospital of Georgia has partnered with Kohl's through its Kohl's Cares® program to raise money to fund important initiatives such as the Kohl’s Cares Asthma Awareness and Education program. During the back-to-school, holiday, spring and summer seasons, Kohl's located at 4227 Washington Road, Evans offer special items for sale, with 100 percent of the net profits donated to the Children's Hospital of Georgia. Since 2006, Kohl's has contributed $123,708 to the Children’s Medical Center to provide important and health education to the children and families of our community.
A very special thanks to Kohl's Department Stores and its associates for their tremendous ongoing support.
At the 2012 Kohl's Cares® Asthma and Education Fair, Kohl's representatives announced their annual contribution to the Children's Hospital of Georgia of $27,530. This family friendly event, held at the Kohl's location in Evans, Ga., was attended by families in the community who enjoyed bouncy houses, educational games, mini train rides and snow cones.
Respiratory Therapy staff from the Children’s Hospital of Georgia provided breathing tests, pulmonary evaluations and distributed important health, diagnosis and management information about Asthma.
