Kohl’s Kids 4 Safety
Child safety in vehicles is an important issue for parents to understand. That’s why Parkview has teamed with Kohl’s to create the Kohl’s Kids 4 Safety program, which focuses on car seat safety and other ways you can protect your children while traveling.

The leading cause of trauma deaths for children is vehicle accidents. Using car and booster seats correctly can significantly lessen the severity of injuries sustained by children during vehicle crashes. This year’s grant of $58,000 will support car seat safety inspections, community events, access to nurses and physicians who can answer child safety questions.
Kohl’s Kids 4 Safety is made possible largely due to the partnership with the Kohl’s Cares merchandise program. Through this initiative, Kohl’s sells $5 books and exclusive plush toys in its stores and online. 100 percent of net profits from items purchased in any of the Fort Wayne Kohl’s locations is donated to Parkview Women’s & Children’s Hospital through Parkview Foundation. Kohl’s Cares grants funding to select children’s hospitals across the country to provide health, safety and educational programming. Since 2000, Kohl’s Cares has donated nearly $1 million to Parkview for child-friendly programming.
