National retailers often contribute to important causes, and Kohl's Department Stores is certainly one of them. The well-known chain, which is headquartered in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, has now partnered with
the American Cancer Society (ACS) to fight breast cancer in the Midwestern state.
The retail establishment will work with the ACS to provide Wisconsin women with more breast health resources and travel assistance to and from medical facilities, while increasing community staffing in order to raise awareness and education about the disease. In addition, Kohl's is donating $600,000 towards breast cancer grants and research.
"In 2010, more than 4,000 Wisconsin women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer. We are honored to have Kohl's join the American Cancer Society to help women stay well and get well," said Jari Johnston-Allen, CEO of the ACS Midwest Division.
Kohl's isn't the first nationwide chain to help promote breast cancer awareness
and raise funds for the fight against the disease. In fact, Kentucky Fried Chicken recently ran their Buckets for the Cure campaign, which raised 4.2 million dollars for the cause.
