Children's Hospital Invites Community to Family Friendly Tree Lighting Event

Kohl's Department Stores to Donate More than $37,000 to The Children's Hospital

MACON, GA (Monday, December 2, 2013) – The community is invited to join The Children's Hospital at The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) on Monday, December 2 at 6:00 p.m. for an annual holiday tradition, the lighting of The Children's Tree.

Hayleigh Marks, a 12 year old from Warner Robins anda patient at The Children's Hospital, will light the tree in honor of all of the hospital's young patients. The Mercer University Children's Choir will provide musical entertainment for the event. Representatives from Kohl's Department Stores will also present a donation of $37,972 to The Children's Hospital, and also provide giveaways for children and safety awareness information for parents. 

Festivities will take place at MCCG's Albert Luce Jr. heart Institute, located at the corner of First and Hemlock Streets. Guests may park in MCCG's Orange Parking Deck or on the street at no charge.

Since 2006, the Kohl's Cares® program has generously given $295,000 to The Children's Hospital at MCCG. The funds have enabled the establishment and growth of the The Children's Hospital's “Kohl's Cares For Kids® Safety Zone” program, which promotes childhood safety awareness and education.

Kohl's commitment to The Children's Hospital at MCCG is made possible through the Kohl's Cares® cause merchandise program. Through this initiative, Kohl's sells $5 books and plush toys where 100 percent of net profit benefits children's health and education programs nationwide, including hospital partnerships like this one. Kohl's has raised more than $231 million dollars through this merchandise program. In addition to the merchandise program, Kohl's Cares® features the Kohl's Cares® Scholarship Program, which last year recognized more than 2,300 young volunteers with more than $400,000 in scholarships and prizes. Through Kohl's Associates in Action volunteer program, more than 669,000 associates have donated more than 2.2 million hours of their time since 2001, and Kohl's has donated more than $63 million to youth-focused nonprofit organizations. Kohl's also offers fundraising gift cards for schools and youth-serving organizations. For more information, visit
