Kohl’s adds $180K to its support for Upstate’s autism programs
SYRACUSE, N.Y.— The Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital will receive more than $180,000 from Kohl’s Department Stores to support the children’s hospital’s Autism and Related Disorders Program. Kohl’s will present its gift during a free, community concert, “Every Voice Matters,” Friday Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at May Memorial Unitarian Church, 3800 East Genesee St., Syracuse.
Since 2004, Kohl’s has provided more than $1 million in support of the program at the children’s hospital.
“The Kohl’s Autism and Related Disorders Program has reached the hearts and minds of children and adults throughout Central New York,” said Carroll Grant, PhD, director, Margaret L. Williams Developmental Evaluation Center. “It has helped make our community more welcoming for everyone including, those with disabilities.”
The Kohl’s Autism and Related Disorders Program has reached thousands of people with its outreach services supporting autism awareness and education, which includes its highly successful interactive puppet workshop and autism awareness events.
