Cohen Children’s Medical Center, part of Northwell Health, was awarded a grant of $210,998 from Kohl’s through its Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program. Presented at the children’s hospital during the annual Children and Healthcare Week fair, the Kohl’s donation to Cohen will support the Kohl’s Cares Keeping Kids Healthy Program, a community-wide nutrition and physical activity program that works to improve children’s overall health and wellness. Since 2000, Kohl’s has donated more than $4.4 million to Cohen.

“We are extremely grateful to Kohl’s for their extraordinary support of the children’s hospital for the last 17 years,” said Debbie Riccardi, DNP, RN, director of community outreach at Cohen. “The partnership between Cohen and Kohl’s helps us strengthen our involvement with the community to help educate children, families, schools and other groups about health and wellness.”

Kohl’s commitment to Cohen Children’s Medical Center is made possible through the Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program. Through this initiative, Kohl’s sells $5 books and plush toys, where 100 percent of net profit benefits children. For more information, visit www.Kohls.com/Cares.
