The press conference to announce Kohl's donation of $58,000 to Parkview Foundation took place on Wednesday, February 25, 2015.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Kohl’s Department Stores will donate more than $58,000 to Parkview Foundation to help fund the continuation of a program that focuses on educating parents and families about child car seat safety and other ways to keep kids safe while traveling.

The Kohl’s Kids 4 Safety program will use the funds to support car safety seat inspections, community events, access to experts who can answer child safety questions and online care seat safety updates and quizzes at www.parkview.com/KohlsKids.

The Kohl’s Kids 4 Safety program demonstrates the continued commitment Parkview and Kohl’s Cares has for children in northeast Indiana,” said Lori Norton, director, Women’s and Children’s Services, Parkview Women’s and Children’s Hospital. “It is important that we are able to provide valuable information to parents that could potentially save the lives of their children.”

Since 2000, Kohl’s Cares has donated more than $1 million to Parkview for child-friendly programing, also earning Kohl’s Department Stores the Diamond Pillar of Parkview Foundation designation.

Prior to the current Kohl’s Kids 4 Safety program, proceeds from Kohl’s Cares also supported the Kohl’s Healthy Kids program which educated parents and families about healthy lifestyle choices.
