Kohl’s Donates $1.7 Million To Support The Fight Against Breast Cancer

Stocks in this article: KSS

Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE:  KSS) today announced the continuation of its partnerships with both the American Cancer Society and the Southeast Wisconsin Affiliate of Susan G. Komen with a $1.7 million donation from Kohl’s and its philanthropic platform, Kohl’s Cares®. The additional funding will allow both organizations to support and expand education and patient-assistance programs.

Kohl’s partnership with the American Cancer Society includes its role as the local presenting sponsor for the 2013 American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Milwaukee and flagship sponsor for walks in Green Bay, Fox Valley and Eau Claire. Kohl’s Cares will also serve as the local presenting sponsor of the 2013 Susan G. Komen Southeast Wisconsin Race for the Cure in September for the fourth consecutive year.

“Kohl’s is pleased to continue our partnerships with both the American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We are proud to support the fight against breast cancer, including programs that provide important resources to help local women."

American Cancer Society

The Kohl's Breast Health for Women program, in partnership with American Cancer Society, focuses on keeping women healthy, reducing their risk of getting breast cancer, providing access to breast cancer screenings, and supporting women diagnosed with breast cancer to make informed decisions about their care and address barriers to treatment.

“The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 4,490 Wisconsin women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone,” said David Benson, American Cancer Society, Midwest Division executive vice president. “Our partnership with Kohl’s Cares continues to meet a critical need in our community. By working together, we’re able to help local women and their families learn ways to prevent and detect breast cancer early and find supporting services as they undergo treatment.”
