ATLANTA -- Kohl's Department Stores has announced a $200,000 cash donation in response to severe weather and tornadoes that caused widespread damage across the Midwest and Southeast.

The money will go to the American Red Cross, which is delivering much-needed emergency assistance throughout the affected areas.

"The destruction caused by the most recent severe weather in the Midwest and Southern regions is devastating and our thoughts are with those affected," said Julie Gardner, Kohl's executive vice president and chief marketing officer. "At such a difficult time, we are grateful to be in a position to give this financial donation to aid in the relief and rebuilding efforts. Our hearts go out to all of the families affected by this tragedy."
