Menomonee Falls, Wis. – Kohl’s Department Stores, based here, and Goodlettsville, Tenn.-based Dollar General Corp. have joining the roster of industry players offering aid to the survivors of Haiti’s 7.0-magnitude earthquake earlier this week.

The 1,059-unit Kohl’s said it is making a $250,000 cash donation to the American Red Cross toward the organization’s Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund, as is Dollar General, which is giving $100,000.

“As a family-focused department store, our hearts go out to the tens of thousands of families impacted by the catastrophic damage caused by this week’s earthquake,” said Julie Gardner, Kohl’s evp and chief marketing officer. “The loss is great, the need is immense, and Kohl’s is proud to be in a position to help during this tragedy.”

Added Rick Dreiling, Dollar General chairman and ceo: “Dollar General is dedicated to helping our friends in Haiti recover from this disaster. We are committed to our mission of serving others, in good times and in bad. We are heartened by the bravery and resiliency of the people of Haiti.”
