DETROIT, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Children's Hospital of Michigan
Foundation and Kohl's invite the community to celebrate Safety Day from 4 p.m.
to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24 at the Children's Hospital of Michigan Stilson
Specialty Center (42700 Garfield, Clinton Township, MI 48038). The event will
feature Detroit Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock, free bike helmets,
children's activities, music, snacks and local public safety officials. Kohl's
will present a check for $467,118 to Children's Hospital of Michigan
Foundation.

The gift supports Kohl's Injury Prevention Program (KIPP) at DMC Children's
Hospital of Michigan, which provides injury prevention education and safety
tools to decrease unintentional child deaths and injuries. Since 2000, Kohl's
has donated more than $5,641,453 through Kohl's Cares^® to the Children's
Hospital of Michigan Foundation to benefit patients and families at DMC
Children's Hospital of Michigan.

"We are grateful for the continued support of Kohl's and the Kohl's Injury
Prevention Program," said Tony Werner, president and CEO for Children's
Hospital of Michigan Foundation. "Kohl's is a valuable partner, and their
commitment to safety is essential to keeping children of all ages protected
and injury free."

Kohl's leadership will present the donation at 5 p.m. to Werner and Joseph L.
Lelli, M.D., chief of pediatric surgery at DMC Children's Hospital of
Michigan. Meanwhile, the community is invited to Kohl's Safety Day for free
bike helmets and fittings, activities, music and snacks. Babcock will sign the
first 100 helmets given to children age 14 and younger. The event is sponsored
by Kohl's, 96.3 WDVD-FM, Garden Fresh Salsa, Little Caesars Pizza Store #1,
BIGGBY Coffee Store #272, Joe Cornell Entertainment, and Perry's Tents and
Events.

The KIPP at DMC Children's Hospital of Michigan offers safety educational
materials and products such as smoke alarms, car seats and bike helmets to
children and their families. They also visit area schools to teach kids about
personal safety.

"Kohl's has been a dedicated supporter of children's health in Michigan since
2000," Lelli said. "We are very fortunate to have such a great partner. Along
with the donations to the Foundation, which allow us to continue injury
prevention programs, Kohl's Associates also volunteer on a regular basis to
make many of our community outreach events a success."

initiative, Kohl's sells $5 books and plush toys, with 100 percent of net
profit benefiting children's health and education programs nationwide,
