Kohl’s Department Store Volunteer Day

On February 16th, we were blessed with 10 volunteers from Kohl’s Department Store! For 3 hours we talked about Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, folded brochures and held our CHERUBS Phone Survey. Our volunteers called 100’s of CHERUBS members in those 3 hours, asking them about our services and what more we can do to help CDH families. We learned a ton and will have those statistics posted soon.

Our local district stores at Kohl’s, and especially our new Wake Forest, NC store, have adopted CHERUBS and we will be working together about once a month on many different projects and events through the year. We are so very, very appreciative for all they are doing for CHERUBS and for CDH families. They are such an incredibly kind and wonderful group of people and we are proud to work with each of them!
