‘Kohl’s Cares for Kids’ Program Benefits SBS Prevention in Wisconsin

5 Feb

According to the Wausau Daily Herald, as of today Central Wisconsin Kohl’s stores once again are selling books and plush toys to support the Kohl’s Cares For Kids initiative. The current line includes books by Dr. Seuss, along with matching toys. All items sell for $5 each. Kohl’s donates 100% of the net profits to children’s health and education initiatives.

Sales of items at the Rib Mountain and Plover Kohl’s stores benefit programs at Aspirus Wausau Hospital aimed at improving safe sleep for babies, preventing shaken baby syndrome and improving child passenger safety and bike helmet use. Since July 2006, more than $74,000 has been raised.

If you live in Central Wisconsin, Rib Mountain or Plover, get thee to a Kohl’s and spend ye money — and be sure to tell them it’s in memory of baby London Marie Sherwood.
