Kohl’s Supports Healthy Lifestyle Program for At-Risk Teens


A $530,000 donation from Kohl’s Department Stores, Inc. was donated to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital to help build and expand programs focused on the obesity epidemic among at-risk adolescents in underserved communities.

The donation, which comes from the Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise store will support healthy lifestyle campaigns at two high-risk Pinellas County High Schools as well as a food pantry for child who are identified as food insecure. Additionally, physicians will be able to access a new obesity tool kit. This tool will provide guides for diagnosing obesity in the office and determining the best treatment plan. It will be available in the coming months online at www.Fit4Allkids.org.
