Kohl's We believe in giving back to the communities we serve, not just with money and resources but also with talent and time. Through our community giving and volunteer program, we support kids' health and education, environmental initiatives nationwide and women's health in Wisconsin, specifically the fight against breast cancer. We envision a future where kids are healthy, resources are plentiful and disease that affects women and their families is eradicated because the way we see it, giving back also means looking ahead.
Speedway Children's Charities
Speedway Children's Charities is more than just a fundraiser. Our local chapters are partners in change, working with a broad range of people and organizations to identify and resolve pressing issues dealing with children in their communities. Challenges ranging from learning disabilities, broken homes, and childhood cancer are on the agenda for the local chapters of SCC and the numerous non-profit organizations they support. Although priorities for Speedway Children's Charities are set locally, we have one common goal - to ensure every child in need be given the tools to build a better, brighter and healthy future. Together in 2011, we awarded more than $2.5 million to over 370 non-profit organizations.
