and wherever kids are on the move—on bikes, on skates, in cars—the
possibility of injury, even serious injury, is lurking
just around the corner.
Parents don’t always know the best ways to keep their kids safe, and
that’s why the Injury Prevention Center (IPC) at Hasbro Children’s
Hospital has teamed with Kohl’s Cares to offer a range of safety
activities in the community throughout the year. This is thanks to the
longstanding generosity of the Kohl’s Cares program.
In 2000, Kohl’s introduced Kohl’s Cares to reinforce its commitment to
children’s health and education. Through the sale of special plush toys,
books, CDs and cookbooks, Kohl’s donates 100 percent of the net profits
to more than 160 hospital partners nationwide, including Hasbro
Children’s Hospital. Since its introduction, the program has raised more
than $180 million.
Recently, the Kohl’s Cares Kids on the Go program and the IPC offered
free bike safety rodeo events at Kohl’s stores and other locations;
experts checked children’s helmets for proper fit while volunteers from
Narragansett Bikes performed bicycle mechanical safety checks. Local
police taught the rules of the road on a chalk course.
Kohl’s and the IPC are active partners in car seat safety. Motor vehicle
crashes remain the leading cause of death for children under 14, which
is why the IPC emphasizes the importance of using the appropriate child
restraints and making sure they are correctly installed in vehicles. The
Kohl’s Cares Kids on the Go program and the IPC organize a number of car
seat events throughout the year at Kohl’s stores and other locations
across Rhode Island. Throughout the year, the IPC distributes and
installs more than 500 new car seats to lower-income families, thanks to
the Kohl’s Cares program.
“Among all of the outreach and supporters of the IPC and its programs,
Kohl’s stands out because of the depth of its commitment to Hasbro
Children’s Hospital year after year,” says Dina Morrissey, MD, MPH, the
IPC’s program coordinator. “Kohl’s truly cares for the children and
families of Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts.”
