Kohl's Keep Your Kids Safe program at the Injury Prevention Program-Driscoll Children's Hospital is dedicated to preventing injuries among children. Thanks to a grant from Kohl's Cares for Kids-(Kohl's Department Store), we are able to continue to raise awareness in the community on a variety of safety topics and conduct community outreach programs. It is our hope that with the great partnership with Kohl's and our multi-faceted approach in educating families on preventable injuries it will help reduce death and injuries among children in our community.
