East Brainerd’s Kohl’s Department Store and Children’s Hospital at Erlanger Safe and Sound Program hosted a back-to-school safety fair and check presentation for $52,895 to Children’s Hospital.

 

As children head back to school and the outside temperatures begin to drop, parents are faced with a new set of concerns when it comes to the safety of their children.

  Fire safety in the home and teenagers texting and driving to and from school are just a few of the initiatives area agencies presented during the safety fair. 

 

“I would like to thank the Chattanooga Fire Department and Tennessee Highway Patrol for their participation and continued support of pediatric injury prevention,” said Coy Ellis, RN, Kohl’s Safe and Sound Program Coordinator.  “Their partnership with our hospital and safety program really drives the message home with the children and their families.”

 

Over the years, area Kohl’s department stores have been huge supporters of the Children’s Hospital Safe and Sound program. 

 

“We feel the Kohl’s Cares program is a perfect fit for meeting both the Safe and Sound mission and the stores’ mission in supporting health initiatives for children,” added Ellis.  “We certainly could not provide some of our services without their support.  We thank their staff for hosting this safety event and their commitment to helping Children’s Hospital at Erlanger keep our kids safe and sound.” 

 

As Kohl’s department store representatives presented a check for $52,895 from proceeds of locally purchased Kohl’s Cares program story books and stuffed toys, Erlanger and Children’s Hospital LIFE FORCE air medical services surprised a few of the shoppers with a fly over to show their appreciation to Kohl’s and its customers.
