Kohl's Cares® 4 U

Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death from children ages 1-18. Nationally, an average of 4 deaths and 602 injuries are reported daily, among children 14 or younger. Young children tend to be at high risk for injuries due to their natural curiosity and limited ability to detect dangers. There are several different types of unintentional injuries that occur like fires, motor vehicle accidents, burns, poisoning, and drowning. These types of injuries are preventable with the right equipment and education to know what precautions can be used to avoid an accident. In an exclusive corporate partnership with Kohl’s, we have created a child injury prevention program named the “Kohl’s Cares 4 U at Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC” providing safety education on a variety of topics to children and families in Southern Nevada.

Child Injury Prevention Education

Kohl’s Cares 4 U at Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC provides community wide education on water safety, car seat safety, bike safety, and pedestrian safety. Community events, health fairs, bicycle rodeos, car seat checks, and school presentations comprise the types of outreach efforts of the program. The Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC formed the exclusive partnership with Kohl’s and received the first grant funds of over $166,000 at the kick- off event in November of 2011 and has continued from that day to work together to ensure the message of injury prevention spreads into the community.

The Kohl’s Cares Foundation donation allows the Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC to provide informational brochures, pencils, coloring books, lifejackets, helmets, and car seats for the children in Clark County. By providing educational information and tools aimed at preventing injuries to parents and children we can have a significant impact on the incident rates in Clark County.

Child Passenger Safety

Kohl’s Cares 4 U provides child passenger safety education and resources to the community. A Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician will provide free inspection/installation services by appointment to educate families on proper fit, recall data, and expiration status of car seats. Throughout the year, car seat check events will be held around the Las Vegas valley to ensure children are safely buckled up.

Out in the Community

To kick off the start of school, we plan to have a bicycle rodeo to teach children of all ages and cycling experience the skills, equipment, and knowledge on how to be safe on the roadways. In addition, we hold water safety events to raise an awareness of drowning prevention messages for parents and children, like the Summer Safety Splash coming up on July 14th at the Lifetime Fitness location in Summerlin. Local fire, police, businesses, and organizations partner with us at our events to provide educational information on injury prevention. During the school year, we also go out to schools to teach children about different injury prevention topics through activities and hands-on learning to teach them the skills they need to be safe. Check our website to see upcoming events happening in the local community.
