Menomonee Falls, Wis. -- Thousands of associates from Kohl’s Department Stores are celebrating Earth Day by volunteering in their local communities during the company’s sixth annual National Go Green event today through the end of June.

Across the country, Kohl’s volunteers will support youth-serving nonprofit organizations by participating in environmentally-based activities as part of Associates in Action, Kohl’s associate volunteer program. In addition to holding volunteer events, Kohl’s will donate corporate grants to each organization, totaling approximately $2 million this year and nearly $12 million over the six years of the program.

In addition to supporting environmentally-based volunteer activities during the National Go Green Event, Kohl’s strives to be a leading environmentally responsible retailer through strategies that include sustainable operations, stakeholder engagement and supply chain collaboration.
