MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. -- August 20, 2013

Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) today announced the renewal of its
partnership with Hunger Task Force with a donation of $1.5 million over the
next three years to continue support of the Kohl’s Serving Up Supper for Kids
program, which provides nutritious meals to Milwaukee children in need
throughout the summer months when school meals are not available. The donation
comes from Kohl’s philanthropic program, Kohl’s Cares®, which sells special
merchandise, including plush toys and books, and donates 100 percent of the
net profit to benefit children’s health and education initiatives nationwide.

“Kohl’s and Hunger Task Force share a commitment to children’s health, and we
applaud the work Hunger Task Force is doing to provide balanced, nutritious
meals to local children in need,” said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief customer
officer. “We are proud to be in a position to continue to support the Kohl’s
Serving Up Supper for Kids program, which has proved to be of great value to
the community.”

Kohl’s Cares donation of $1.5 million over the next three years will result in
more than 120,000  suppers being served annually between June and August.
Kohl’s Cares partnership with Hunger Task Force began in 2009 and has since
provided more than 350,000 meals to date.

“Kohl’s Cares continues to be a committed and generous partner as they support
our efforts to provide meals to Milwaukee children in need during the summer
months when they aren’t provided meals at school,” said Sherrie Tussler,
Hunger Task Force executive director. “Together with Kohl’s Cares, we are
helping kids get the nutrition they need in a safe and friendly environment,
alleviating some stress from moms and dads who are worried about how to feed
their kids during the summer.”

Since 2000, Kohl’s Department Stores together with Kohl's Cares have combined
to give more than $63 million to support charitable initiatives in the
metro-Milwaukee area, including more than $4 million to Hunger Task Force to
help provide nutritious meals to children in need. To date, the Kohl’s Cares
cause merchandise program has raised more than $231 million for children’s
initiatives nationwide.
