Covenant Health and Kohl's Cares Hosting Carnival Day at the Park

LUBBOCK, TX -- Covenant Children’s and Kohl’s Cares® hosts Carnival Day at the Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 6 at the northwest corner of Maxey Park, across from the Children’s hospital, at 24th Street between Nashville and Peoria avenues.

As part of the Healthy Heroes initiative, organizers of the free event invite families to come out for family fun and activities, including tasty treats, inflatable bouncers, games, giveaways and prizes, and health education opportunities.

Covenant Children's has received a new grant of $38,434 from Kohl's Cares® in a continued partnership to educate and provide awareness on health and wellness to the West Texas community through the Healthy Heroes initiative.

Since 2005, Kohl's has donated more than $240,000 to Covenant Children's. Other Covenant initiatives supported through Kohl's Cares® include Kohl's Boot Camp for New Parents, Kohl's Fit Kids and Kohl's Safety Scene.

Kohl's commitment to Covenant Children's is made possible through the Kohl's Cares cause merchandise program. Through this initiative, Kohl's sells $5 books and plush toys, where 100 percent of net profit benefits children's health and education programs nationwide, including hospital partnerships like this one. Kohl's has raised more than $274 million through this merchandise program. In addition to the merchandise program, Kohl's Cares features the Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program, which last year recognized more than 2,500 young volunteers with more than $400,000 in scholarships and prizes. Through the Kohl's Associates in Action volunteer program, more than 834,000 associates have donated more than 3.2 million hours of their time since 2001, and Kohl's has donated more than $79 million to youth-focused nonprofit organizations. Kohl's also offers fundraising gift cards for schools and youth-serving organizations. For more information, visit www.Kohls.com/Cares.
