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 are turned upside down and choices in many aspects of life become limited due to the economic and emotional burden cancer places on the family. Many of our families spend the holidays in the hospital, are unable to travel for a holiday dinner, or simply struggle to put food on the table.
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.
Mail or drop off Gift Cards to Friends of Karen at either office:
Attention: Denise Tredwell,118 Titicus Road, North Salem, NY 10560 or
Attention: Rebecca Plant, 21 Perry Street, Port Jefferson, NY 11777
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! For more information visit friendsofkaren.org/easter-passover or call Denise Tredwell at (914) 617-4052.
Friends of Karen is a registered 501(c)(3) charity. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible.
Thank you and have a happy spring.
