This spring, please help our Friends of Karen children and their families have an Easter or Passover holiday meal. Your donation of supermarket gift cards will help make this possible.

Why gift cards?

When a child is diagnosed with cancer or another life-threatening illness, parents feel like their lives are spinning out of control. Family life and structure is turned upside down and choices in many aspects of life become limited due to the economic and emotional burden cancer places on the family. Now, life is even more complicated; 42% of Friends of Karen families have a loss of income due to COVID-19 and 11% of Friends of Karen ill children have contracted the virus. Your help is needed now more than ever before. 

 
We want to give our families the opportunity to enjoy a holiday meal based on their traditions and individual circumstances. That’s why we’re asking you to please donate gift cards to ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Key Food, Target, Walmart, Visa or MasterCard. A gift of $50 or more will help feed a family of four. 
 
You can help us reach our goal of meals for more than 300 families.
If you cannot shop for a gift card, we will gratefully accept a donation of any amount and we’ll do the shopping for you! 
 
Call Denise Tredwell at (914) 617-4052 for more information. Please mail gift cards to Friends of Karen, 118 Titicus Road, North Salem NY 10560

Friends of Karen is a registered 501(c)(3) charity. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible. 
Thank you and have a happy spring.
