MENOMONEE FALLS — Kohl’s Department Stores announced Thursday it has donated more than $2.1 million during the past three years to Susan G. Komen Southeast Wisconsin.

The donated funds came from Kohl’s and Kohl’s Cares, the company’s philanthropic platform, to continue community outreach efforts dedicated to the health and well-being of women in southeast Wisconsin.

“Through Kohl’s Cares partnership with Komen Southeast Wisconsin, valuable breast health information has been provided to thousands of local women,” said Bevin Bailis, Kohl’s senior vice president, communications and public relations, in a statement. “We are committed to supporting families in our hometown, including those fighting back against a disease that unfortunately touches so many, and are inspired by the work being done to inform women and encourage them to seek out information about breast health.”

The donation will support the Kohl’s Conversations for the Cure program which allows Komen Southeast Wisconsin to engage in important dialogue with local women and provide them access to lifesaving breast health resources, according to the announcement.
