Kohl’s Department Store in Cape Girardeau has donated $21,973 to the Kohl’s Youth Diabetes Care Network, a service of the Southeast Diabetes Center. The money came from the sale of Kohl’s Cares®books and plush toys. Since 2006, Kohl’s has donated more than $121,994 to help fund SoutheastHEALTH programs. The presentation was made Saturday, March 9, at the Osage Centre as part of “Sign Up Saturday,” an event to register children for summer sports and other activities.
