KOHLS CARES FOR KIDS: PROMOTION TO BENEFIT CHKD
HAMPTON ROADS – During the back-to-school, holiday and spring seasons, Kohl's Department Stores offer special items for sale with all profits donated to children's hospitals. As part of this season's Kohl's Cares for Kids children's hospital campaign, Kohl's is selling classic children’s books accompanied by plush stuffed animals for $5 each, while supplies last. Proceeds will benefit Children's Hospital of The King’s Daughters. Titles include family favorites such as “Go, Dog Go!, “Put Me in the Zoo” and “Are You My Mother.” To purchase an item in the Kohl's Cares for Kids® Collection, visit a store near you or shop online at www.kohls.com.
