Kmart is March of Dimes number one partner for health of moms and babies

Kmart’s members, customers and associates have donated $11 million this year to March of Dimes’ annual March for Babies® to give more babies a healthy start in life.

“Because of Kmart’s support, more women will get the prenatal care they need, and 92,000 families of babies in newborn intensive care all across the country will get comfort and guidance. We are truly grateful to everyone at Kmart for their remarkable contributions to this effort,” said Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, president of March of Dimes.

Kmart has been a March of Dimes partner for more than three decades, and its annual fundraising campaigns have raised more than $125 million, more than any other corporation.

“Kmart’s commitment to March of Dimes is historic,” said Tim Austin, Kmart’s SVP of Retail Services and the 2014 March for Babies National Chairman. “Helping babies clearly resonates with our customers and associates, and personally, it brings me immense joy. Kmart’s ongoing effort to support March of Dimes helps fund education programs and research initiatives that can help more babies receive the healthy start in life they deserve.”
