Previously, local students at South Orange Middle School and Jefferson School have held fundraisers to help Kohl's family with expenses.
You can also help defray the family's expenses by visiting the HK C.A.R.E.S program of the HK Community Fund. HK has set up an online donation site at: www.hkcommunityfund.org.
