Welcome to the Kohl’s Cares Grow Safe & Healthy program
Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and Kohl’s Cares® share the mission of keeping kids in our community safe, healthy and injury free. That’s why, together, we’ve developed Kohl’s Cares Grow Safe & Healthy, a community injury prevention program that provides a trusted educational resource for safety in the home, outdoors and on the go. The more families know about safety and injury prevention, the healthier they can be.
Spriggy and the Keep Spriggy Safe game app
Spriggy is a loveable blue character who finds himself in dangerous situations. He is the mascot of this program, and his mission is to teach children how to stay safe in the home, around the home and on the go. The Keep Spriggy Safe Game app is FREE for parents and caregivers to download from iTunes or Google Play.

Kohl’s Cares Grow Safe & Healthy Mobile Unit
The Mobile Unit is scheduled to make more than 30 stops at community events in 2014. It features an interactive digital kiosk that introduces kids to the Keep Spriggy Safe game and engages parents in injury prevention discussion with free safety materials. Check the tour schedule for upcoming event stops.
Kiosks are placed in area libraries, pediatric offices and YMCAs. The interactive kiosks are a kid-friendly table and chairs with an iPad affixed to the tabletop where kids can play the Keep Spriggy Safe game. Watch for announcements of additional kiosk installations in the community in 2014.
Kohl’s Cares Grow Safe & Healthy is thrilled to partner with 14 YMCAs throughout eastern Wisconsin to share child safety and injury prevention information with the hundreds of thousands of children and families who utilize the Y’s day camps, summer camps, childcare centers, fitness facilities and programs.
