MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. -- August 5, 2014

Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) will donate more than $500,000 in
corporate grants to nonprofits in recognition of the associate volunteer
events taking place nationwide in July and August to support health and
wellness initiatives. All of Kohl’s 1,160 stores are participating in
volunteer events that support children’s hospitals and youth-serving
organizations through the company’s Associates in Action volunteer program.

“Kohl’s associates are deeply committed to giving back to the communities we
serve. Volunteering is part of our culture and who we are as a company,” said
Bevin Bailis, Kohl’s senior vice president, communications and public
relations. “We are proud to partner with organizations across the county to
support events that encourage families to live healthy lifestyles.”

Through this initiative, groups of Kohl’s associates will volunteer across the
country for a variety of events, including:

  *back-to-school immunization clinic in San Antonio, Texas
  *a car seat safety check and giveaway in Philadelphia, Pa.
  *a free dental clinic for low-income children in Dallas, Texas
  *an annual “Safety Day” event promoting childhood injury prevention in
    Detroit, Mich.

Many of the organizations benefitting from the associate volunteer efforts
this July and August are current partners with Kohl’s through the Kohl’s
Cares® hospital program. The program was introduced in 2000 to reinforce
Kohl’s commitment to the communities we serve and to promote children’s
health. With funding provided through the Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise
program, Kohl’s partners with more than 160 children’s hospitals nationwide to
help educate kids and their parents with tailored outreach programs based on
their community’s individual need. These programs focus on a variety of kids’
health and safety topics – from healthy lifestyle / obesity prevention to
childhood injury prevention.

Since 2001, through the Associates in Action volunteer program, more than
834,000 Kohl’s associates nationwide have participated in volunteer activities
resulting in more than $79 million in corporate grants to qualifying
youth-serving 501(c)(3) nonprofits. When associates form teams of five or more
to support a local youth-serving charity, the company supports the team’s
participation with a corporate grant given directly to the nonprofit.
Associates in Action is part of Kohl’s overall philanthropic platform, Kohl’s
Cares®, which also includes the Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program, Kohl’s
Cares Scholarship Program, Kohl’s Cares fundraising gift card program and
partnerships with more than 160 hospitals nationwide.
