The Kohl’s Department Stores recently recognized more than 2,200 young volunteers nationwide who have made a positive impact in their communities through volunteerism.
Thirty-four youth from Connecticut, including Tess Maggio of Weston, each received a $50 gift card and recognition certificate from Kohl’s to honor their community service efforts.
This year, Kohl’s celebrates its 12th year of rewarding remarkable young volunteers.
These winners qualify for the chance to receive a $1,000 regional scholarship for post-secondary education, which Kohl’s will award later this month. Of the more than 200 regional winners, 10 national winners will each receive a total of $10,000 in scholarships and Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner’s behalf.
In total this year, Kohl’s will recognize more than 2,200 young volunteers with more than $420,000 in scholarships and prizes.
“Kohl’s is thrilled to recognize more than 2,200 young volunteers who have dedicated their time and energy to bettering the communities in which we live,” said Julie Gardner, Kohl’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “Every effort, large or small, makes a difference. Through the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program, we strive to not only recognize these efforts but also encourage outstanding youth to improve their communities through volunteerism.”
