K.I.S.S. Your Kids (Kohl’s Is Sold on Safety) has a new name!
“Safety for All Seasons” will continue to be your trusted source for research-based child injury prevention information. In 2014 we will be focusing on helmet safety – keeping your brain safe throughout the year by using the right helmet for the right sport activity, while continuing to offer comprehensive safety tips. Watch this page for community events, coloring contests and other ways you can get free information, or even a free helmet!
Nationwide Children’s Hospital, with generous support from Kohl’s Cares®, sponsors a seasonal educational initiative to promote the prevention of the most common injuries seen in our emergency department – injuries that are leading causes of death for kids and parents.
