Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) today announced a $1 million cash
donation toward Hurricane Sandy relief efforts along the East Coast. Kohl’s is
providing this donation to the American Red Cross, which is delivering

additional corporate grants to the nonprofit organizations being supported by
Kohl’s associates.

“Our hearts go out to the families and communities impacted by the severe
weather and flooding caused by Hurricane Sandy. Kohl’s wants these families to
know that we are here to help,” said Vicki Shamion, Kohl’s senior vice
president, public relations, social marketing and community relations. “The
destruction has been great, the need will be ongoing, and Kohl’s is proud to
be in a position to provide financial assistance, as well as volunteer
service, to our valued customers, associates and residents along the East
Coast.”
