MENOMONEE FALLS óIn addition to thousands of Kohlís Department Stores employees volunteering in their local communities for Earth Day, Kohlís will donate corporate grants to each organization totaling about $2 million this year and nearly $12 million during the six years of the National Go Green program.

The National Go Green event runs today through the end of June. As part of the effort, Kohlís volunteers will support youth-serving nonprofit organizations by participating in environmentally-based activities as part of Associates in Action, Kohlís associate volunteer program.

ďEach year, thousands of Kohlís associates from around the country volunteer their time and talents to hundreds of deserving nonprofit organizations during Kohlís National Go Green, giving back to our communities by making them better places to live and work,Ē said Bevin Bailis, Kohlís senior vice president of communications and public relations, in a statement. ďVolunteerism is at the heart of Kohlís and our teams of winning associates have rallied together to make an impact in cities and towns across America.Ē

One local event will be the potting of trees, constructing garden beds and bird houses, and transplanting native seedlings with Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful and the Urban Ecology Center at Kohlís Corporate Office in Menomonee Falls.
