Kohl's employees help sort food donations

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Kohl's employees took a break from their jobs Monday to help out the Hunger Task Force. 

Three hundred fifty employees sorted $125,000 lbs of food that will be distributed local pantries and shelters. 

Nearly 50,000 families will benefit from the donations. 

Kohl's says they're grateful for the opportunity to give back. 

"At Kohl's, we really believe in supporting family health and wellness, not only the physical health and nutritional health but also mental and social health. And so this is a big part of our overall focus in all of our communities across the country, but particularly an important one in Milwaukee," said Tara Geiter, Kohl's Director of Community Relations. 

Kohl's employees have sorted nearly 650,000 pounds of food donations since 2016.
