to give $2 million in grants to organizations nationwide
April 22, 2015
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.
