How Kohl's is Helping Us Save Lives


The American Cancer Society and Kohl’s have partnered to create the Kohl’s Healthy Families program which supports families – primarily in southeast Wisconsin – through the prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.   

Kohl's Healthy Families programming currently includes:

  • The Healthy Families Guidebook that contains practical tips and tools to support healthy eating and active living to reduce cancer risk.  American Cancer Society screening guidelines are also included.  Information is presented in an easy-to-understand format with recipes, exercise ideas, and stress management tips for the entire family.
  • Community wellness grants that provide education about the connection between healthy eating, active living, and cancer risk.  Programming provides increased access to healthy foods and opportunities to be physically active within the community.
  • Community cancer screening grants that target increasing cancer screening during the pandemic.  Funding supports outreach and education about age-appropriate cancer screenings, navigation for individuals to complete screenings, and if needed, assistance with after-diagnosis care.  
  • Continued collaboration with local community health workers who provide a critical link to vulnerable communities by connecting residents to needed resources.  A webinar series provides education and resources on topics such as cancer prevention and screening.
  • Kohl’s is sponsoring these select Relay For Life events in southeast Wisconsin in 2021: Kenosha, Racine, Hartford-Slinger, West Bend, and Union Grove
  • An online resource at acskohls.org with useful information about eating healthy, maintaining a healthy weight, and being active to help lower your cancer risk.

Kohl’s is proud to continue our partnership with the American Cancer Society to ensure that Milwaukee-area families have access to information and resources. We hope to make a positive difference in the lives of Wisconsin families by encouraging healthy habits through the Kohl’s Healthy Families program.
