Go Green Event Benefits Environment and Kids With Special Needs

April 22, 2014

The inclement weather on Tuesday, April 15 didn’t stop Kohl’s associates from celebrating Kohl’s National GoGreen Initiative  and giving back to the environment and kids as part of the company’s Associates in Action volunteer program. At Children’s Specialized Hospital’s Mountainside location, 45 volunteers from area Kohl’s gathered to sort and package donations, sanitize toys, and create cards with recycled material to brighten the day of patients. Children’s Specialized Hospital is the largest pediatric rehabilitation hospital in the country and treats children affected by brain injury, spinal cord injury, premature birth, autism, developmental delays, and life-changing illnesses at 12 sites throughout New Jersey.
 
This volunteer effort was part of Kohl’s fifth annual National Go Green Event in celebration of National Volunteer Week and Earth Day. As part of this initiative, the company will donate a total of $2 million in grants to nonprofits nationwide for the fifth year in a row, including approximately $12,000 in grants for Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation.

Children’s Specialized Hospital is the nation’s leading provider of inpatient and outpatient care for children from birth to 21 years of age facing special health challenges — from chronic illnesses and complex physical disabilities like brain and spinal cord injuries, to developmental and behavioral issues like autism and mental health. At thirteen different New Jersey locations, our pediatric specialists partner with families to make our many innovative therapies and medical treatments more personalized and effective...so children can achieve more of their goals.
