Johns Hopkins Bayview receives donation from Kohl’s

Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center will receive more than $81,000 from the Kohl’s Cares for Kids philanthropic initiative. A check presentation will take place today, June 22, at the medical center’s Annual C.R. Bard Inc. Golf Classic at Hayfields Country Club. The donation is the result of the Kohl’s Cares for Kids merchandise program, which features $5 books and plush toys. One hundred percent of the program’s net profits support hospital partnerships.

The donation will fund Kids Care First Aid Kits, which will be available through the Johns Hopkins Bayview Care-A-Van, a mobile medical unit providing health care to residents without a regular source of medical care; Stork’s Nest, an incentive program for low-income mothers that provides an array of baby needs, such as diapers, formula and clothing; and community health fairs, which raise awareness about good health and safety practices.
