Kohl’s National Give Back initiative looks to give back to communities across the country

Food to The Rescue (FTTR), a local nonprofit that partners with local churches, businesses and individuals who volunteer to help feed children while on school breaks, announced in a Facebook post they are receiving a $25,000 grant from Kohl’s presented as a part of the ongoing effort to give back to the community. 

Kohl’s National Give Back initiative looks to “give back to communities across the country, providing support and monetary rewards for local causes and eligible nonprofits.”

“This grant will help Food To The Rescue in their mission to provide nutritious food and snacks to those children in our area who are food insecure and away from free lunches during the school break,” said FTTR. “Food To The Rescue is proud to have been selected to receive a $25,000 grant from Kohl’s through their national give back initiative.” 

As a part of Kohl’s ongoing volunteer effort “Kohl’s Cares” program, Kohl’s associates and staff often volunteer with the nonprofit organization, packing food and delivering to the homes of those children in need, according to the post.

“Kohl’s Cares is committed to giving back to local communities and supporting the causes that matter to you and your neighbors,” says Kohl’s. The company has raised over $400 million worldwide.
