Birthday Presents

Every child looks forward to their special day. That is why Friends of Karen provides a gift for every child in the family, so that birthdays remain a happy occasion even in the midst of illness. This takes additional financial and emotional burdens off the shoulders of parents, who are immersed in caring for their ill child and keeping their family functioning. Every month, we send age-appropriate birthday gifts to 60-80 children.

We often include a Birthday Bag filled with candles, party plates, napkins and a small grocery gift card for refreshments.

Birthday Gifts include:

  • New toys, books, and games for children of all ages.
  • MasterCard and Visa gift cards for teenagers.
  • Amazon, Gap, H&M, Old Navy and Target gift cards.

To participate and donate toys and gift cards, please click her for our Birthday Wish List.

You can also make a cash donation and we’ll do the shopping!

For more information, contact or call 914-617-4052.

Please mail gift cards to our North Salem or Melville office:
