“Car crashes are the number one killer of children 1 to 12 years old in the United States,” says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. “The best way to protect them in the car is to put them in the right seat, at the right time, and use it the right way.”

Kohl’s 4 Kids also provides bike-safety education through an interactive display called Safety Town, offered at local events. The display involves a street grid with typical town buildings, road signs and even a railroad crossing. Children peddle through the streets on bikes, while program staff and volunteers coach them on observing “rules of the road” for bikers. Program staff also visit local organizations to provide safety talks.
Since 2006, Kohl’s has donated $1,415,344 to SSM Health Cardinal Glennon. Kohl's commitment to the hospital is made possible through the Kohl's Cares® cause merchandise program. Through this initiative, Kohl’s sells $5 books and soft toys, where 100% of the net profit benefits children’s health initiatives nationwide.
