Kohl's to Conduct National Volunteer Event

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis.-To mark National Volunteer Week and the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, Kohl's will send tens of thousands of its associates to volunteer throughout the nation this month.

The initiative is part of the department-store retailer's first National Volunteers Go Green event. The volunteers will support youth-serving non-profit organizations throughout the country by participating in an environmentally based activity, and Kohl's will match those efforts with corporate grants. In a statement, the company said those contributions should total $2 million.

This month, Kohl's associates plan to participate in a cleanup of Riverside Park in Milwaukee with the Urban Ecology Center, a "Creek to Bay Clean Up" in San Diego and a cleanup of Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. Kohl's associates regularly take part in volunteer efforts through the company's A-Team program, which supports a range of youth-focused non-profit organizations.
