Here are a few kinds of volunteer opportunities for you -- or suggest one you'd like to do!

  • Collect $25 grocery gift cards.
  • Collect toys and other items for our "gift pantry." (Check our wish list first.)
  • Collect loose change, or recycle cans and bottles and donate the refund to Friends of Karen.
  • Collect $5 gift certificates to Au Bon Pain, Cafe Metro, Dunkin’ Donuts, Fresh and Co., Panera, Subway, or Starbucks.
  • Organize a tag sale -- we’ll start you off with a box of tag sale “stuff.”
  • Charge staff or students for the opportunity to “dress down” for the day.
