HOUSTON, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Earlier this month, Texas Children's Center for Childhood Injury Prevention received a check from Kohl's for $291,890 to ensure the continued commitment to child safety in the Houston area. Since 2001, Kohl's has donated more than $3.2 million to Texas Children's Hospital through the Kohl's Cares® program. For more information please visit texaschildrens.org/injuryprevention.
"We are so grateful to Kohl's for their continued support of our program," said Kristen Beckworth, manager, Texas Children's Center for Childhood Injury Prevention. "This donation will be used to continue to provide education to local families about potential household hazards and other safety tips."
Following the check presentation, a safety event for families was held. During the interactive program hosted by Texas Children's, participants were taught proper sleep safety for infants – including how to properly set up and take down portable crib systems and the dangers of co-sleeping, when parents sleep in the same bed with their young child, as well as an explanation about common household safety hazards including button battery safety.
The Kohl's Safe at Home Program is a multifaceted year round program providing safe sleep awareness and home safety education to parents of young children residing in the Greater Houston Area. Kohl's program provides injury prevention education and child safety resources that are free to the public. Kohl's Safe at Home Program staff also educates area day care facilities, administration and staff on SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) reduction strategies and safe sleep environments that are required by Child Care licensing.
Kohl's commitment to Texas Children's Hospital 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's health and education programs nationwide, including hospital partnerships like this one. Kohl's has raised more than $231 million dollars through this merchandise program. In addition to the merchandise program, Kohl's Cares® features the Kohl's Cares® Scholarship Program, which last year recognized more than 2,300 young volunteers with more than $400,000 in scholarships and prizes. Through Kohl's Associates in Action volunteer program, more than 669,000 associates have donated more than 2.2 million hours of their time since 2001, and Kohl's has donated more than $63 million to youth-focused nonprofit organizations. Kohl's also offers fundraising gift cards for schools and youth-serving organizations. For more information, visit www.Kohls.com/Cares.
