Kohl’s has announced a donation pledge of $3 million over three years to the American Cancer Society to continue the retailer’s support in the fight against breast cancer. The donation will also launch a new Kohl’s Healthy Families program in southeast Wisconsin, dedicated to providing information and resources on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
“Kohl’s is proud to expand our partnership with the American Cancer Society from our focus on breast cancer to all cancer, offering critical support to local families,” said Bevin Bailis, svp/communications and public relations, Kohl’s. “We know a cancer diagnosis affects an entire family and is difficult for patients and their loved ones. The new Kohl’s Healthy Families program ensures everyone has the information, resources and programs they need to fight back against the disease.”
Additionally, the donation will continue Kohl’s annual support of the Community Health Workers Conference and its role as the presenting sponsor of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Milwaukee walk.
“A substantial number of cancer deaths could be prevented by making healthy choices like eating well and being active. Through the new Kohl’s Healthy Families program, we’ll be able to offer tips, tools and other resources to help families in southeast Wisconsin live healthy and lower their risk of cancer,” said Marie Daly, vp/community engagement, American Cancer Society’s midwest division.
“The American Cancer Society’s continued partnership with Kohl’s meets a need in our community and provides critical support for the fight against cancer,” added Daly.
