Kohl’s Department Stores announced a $150,000 cash donation toward flood relief efforts in Colorado. Kohl’s is providing this donation to the American Red Cross, which is delivering much-needed emergency supplies and services in the impacted areas.

In addition to a financial contribution, Kohl’s encourages its associates to volunteer in support of cleanup efforts through its Associates in Action volunteer program. In recognition of volunteer hours, Kohl’s will donate additional corporate grants to the nonprofit organizations being supported by Kohl’s associates.

“Our hearts go out to the families and communities that were so deeply impacted by the devastating floods and destruction in Colorado,” said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief customer officer. “We are grateful to be in a position to provide financial assistance and volunteer support as these communities come together to repair and rebuild.”

Kohl’s Associates in Action volunteers help a range of youth-serving nonprofit organizations year-round. Through the Associates in Action volunteer program, more than 669,000 associates have donated more than 2.2 million hours of their time since 2001, and Kohl’s has donated more than $63 million to the nonprofit organizations served.

This program is part of Kohl’s overall philanthropic platform, Kohl’s Cares, which is committed to supporting children’s health and education initiatives nationwide.
