Large donation to help local Ronald McDonald House

Posted: Updated:
Volunteers from Kohl's donated over a thousand dollars to the Ronald McDonald House of Amarillo, Saturday afternoon.

The charity group provides housing for families that have to travel across the panhandle for medical treatment.

Workers at Kohl's say the donation is part of their Earth Day and National Go Green event. "This is the associates in action team which is Kohl's program to encourage community involvement with our associates. We come out to different charities and help them out and then if five associates donate three hours of their time, Kohl's will kick in and make a monitory donation," said manager Jerry Mathies.

Kohl's volunteers also rolled up their sleeves to help clean up the property and plant some new landscaping for the Ronald McDonald house.
