Kohls & BGC

A group of over 30 hardworking volunteers from Kohl’s donated several hours of their time Oct. 19 to help prepare for the grand opening of the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County’s Garden Terrace Teen Center.

The effort led by Jordan Chacon, Kohl’s District 39 Loss Prevention manager, was a huge success. Accompanied by his loss prevention team, The “Associates in Action,” were able to help with several painting and cleaning needs; assemble several items of furniture including two desks, two benches and 20 chairs; hang dry-erase boards, calendars, decorations, mirrors and floating shelves; and create a pallet wall — in addition to helping with a holiday project for the club.

One of the volunteers, Loss Prevention manager Paul Dragone, said, “It was great to go out there as Kohl’s LP associates and serve our community as one team.”

Club CEO William Armstead said, “We are so grateful for Kohl’s Associate in Action volunteer group. The dedicated individuals from Kohl’s worked hard to help make the Garden Terrace Teen Center a safe and attractive facility.”
