Kohl's rewards 10 young volunteers with $5,000 scholarships

Kohl's Department Stores named 10 remarkable young volunteers as the national winners of the Kohl's Kids Who Care Scholarship Program. With the cost of tuition rising at nearly three times the rate of family income and student borrowing for college more than doubling over the last decade1, scholarships are more important than ever to help families make post-secondary education accessible to their children.

Of the nearly 18,000 kids who were nominated for the annual Kohl's Kids Who Care Scholarship Program, these 10 kids, ranging in age from 8 to 18, went above and beyond with their volunteer efforts and have made outstanding positive contributions to their communities. Each national winner receives a $5,000 scholarship for post-secondary education. Kohl's will also donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization of each winner's choosing.

This year's Kohl's Kids Who Care scholarship recipients exemplified the spirit of volunteerism by providing new socks and clothing essential to the homeless, running triathlons to raise money for cancer research, providing eyeglasses to those with no access or means to afford proper eyewear and starting organizations to raise money and support for U.S. military troops.

Scholarship recipients are:
- Mimi Ausland, 13, Bend, Ore. – Mimi volunteers with the Humane Society of Central Oregon and raised $250,000 worth of pet food for animals at 11 shelters.
- Paul Carey, 18, West Chester, Ohio – Paul helped raise $300,000 for Amyothrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's disease, and lobbied in Washington D.C. for ALS support and funding.
- Rocco Fiorentino, 12, Voorhees, N.J. – Born blind, Rocco has been the ambassador for his family's organization, The Little Rock Foundation, providing resources for families with blind children.
- Patrick Foster, 18, Sachse, Texas – Patrick co-founded Dallas is Love, a nonprofit providing $290,000 worth of goods, such as books, CDs and personal items, to soldiers.
- Jeffrey Hanson, 15, Overland Park, Kan. – Born with Neurofibromatosis, Jeffrey donated $100,000 to Neurofibromatosis research and various other charities from money raised from his notecard and watercolor paintings.
- Dallas Jessup, 17, Vancouver, Wash. – Dallas founded Just Yell Fire, a nonprofit empowering girls to fight back against abduction and sexual assault, raising nearly $1 million and creating a safety program for women across 43 countries.
- Bailey Reese, 13, Niceville, Fla. – Bailey founded Hero Hugs, collecting $400,000 and sending more than 38,000 appreciation packages to troops deployed overseas.
- Anna Rose, 18, Evergreen, Colo. – Anna started Sight Angels, providing more than $265,000 worth of eye glasses to those in need in the U.S. and throughout the world.
Hannah Turner, 8, Perrysburg, Ohio – Hannah formed Hannah's Socks, a nonprofit collecting 100,000clothing items for homeless shelters in Ohio.
