The Kohl’s Department Stores’ Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program honors more than 200 deserving volunteers with $1,000 scholarships toward post-secondary education. Two children from the Hartford-New Haven area were chosen from more than 37,000 nominees nationwide for making a positive impact on their community. One of them was Alison Centorino of Cheshire. Centorino, with the help of her family, started CUREchief Foundation Inc., which has donated more than 250,000 soft head covering scarves to comfort people with cancer. Through the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program, Kohl's is assisting deserving youth pursue a college education at a time when 55 percent of bachelor’s degree recipients at public colleges borrow money and are finding education increasingly difficult to afford.*
“Kohl's has rewarded thousands of amazing kids through the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program and this year alone, we are recognizing nearly 2,200 stand out youth who are making a difference with their volunteer time,” said Julie Gardner, Kohl’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “From feeding the homeless at a local shelter, collecting goods for the less fortunate or volunteering time at a community garden, these kids are making a huge impact on communities nationwide. We are inspired by their stories and are thrilled to recognize their service.”
