More than 25 Kohl’s associate volunteers will lend a hand creating wildlife habitat and removing invasive species at the Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary this Saturday.
Stores in McKinney, Frisco, Garland and Plano are participating in this event. Kohl’s will donate approximately $6,000 to the Heard Natural Science Museum in recognition of the volunteer efforts. It’s part of Kohl’s Department Stores third annual Kohl’s National Go Green Event (NGG) in celebration of two April events – National Volunteer Week and Earth Day.
Through Kohl’s associate volunteer program, Associates in Action, Kohl’s volunteers are supporting youth-serving nonprofit organizations through an environmentally-based activity. Kohl’s matches volunteer efforts year-round, with $500 grants to the organizations. During the NGG initiative, Kohl’s increases this grant amount for each event with company-wide efforts resulting in $2 million in grants for community organizations nationwide.
