Eureka (October 2, 2012) - Kohl's Department Store, through the Kohl's Cares cause merchandise program, will be donating $11,680 to St. Joseph Health – Humboldt County Community Resource Centers. The donations were collected from Kohl’s Eureka store over the last year. The money from Kohl’s Safety for Kids program will be used to support several bicycle rodeos, held by the Community Resource Centers, over the next year.

Each bike rodeo will feature bike safety inspections, a lecture on rules of the road, a bicycle obstacle course, helmet fitting, free helmets for those in need and giveaways. The goal is to encourage safe bike riding, which ultimately will help reduce childhood injuries caused by bicycle accidents.
