Kudos to Kohl’s and 65 employees for their generosity

CCH is grateful to Kohl’s department stores and their employees: This spring, 65 area Kohl’s employees put together toiletry and personal hygiene kits for distribution by our organizing team.

CCH organizers distributed hundreds of kits to people during their outreach in Chicago shelters and to people who live on the street.

Kohl’s also donated $11,000 to support CCH’s work!

“It’s always a pleasure to bring our teams together for a great cause,” said Nick Vanella, Kohl’s VP Regional Manager. “But we were especially excited to have the opportunity to provide hygiene kits to the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless this April.

“It was a great day, with associates from 25 store locations across the Chicago area who volunteered 200 total hours to assemble these kits with basic toiletry items.

“Our event for the coalition was unique in that we secured a physical donation of supplies. Our only challenge was to find a non-for-profit with the outreach and the ability to accept such a large volume and distribute them into the right hands. A big thanks to leadership at the coalition for partnering with us for the event, and for the impact you make every day for those in need across Illinois.”
