Your generosity will assure that Friends of Karen families will remain financially and emotionally stable while caring for their critically ill child. As if life wasn’t complicated enough, parents now have the added stress of COVID-19, home schooling, job layoffs, and more.

Our Back to School 2021 program will address today’s necessities for our critically ill children and their siblings who are unable to attend in-person school programs. The children need your help now more than ever.

Due to the current uncertain times, we are unable to collect school supplies.

You can help us reach our goal TODAY to provide 750 children with gift cards for school supplies and clothing, and funds to cover internet access for online schooling, and support from Friends of Karen’s family support team.

Will you help our children? We cannot reach our goal without you!

Here's how you can help

  • $25 - $100 cash or gift card donations to Mastercard, Visa, Target, Amazon, and Staples will provide necessary school supplies and clothing for Friends of Karen children
  • $150 will provide a critically ill child with internet access to stay connected to school and our family support team.
  • $250 will provide a critically ill child and well sibling with supplies, clothing, internet access to stay connected to school, and virtual emotional and sibling support from our family support team.

Please mail gift cards to Denise Tredwell c/o Friends of Karen 118 Titicus Road, North Salem, NY 10560. LI donors please call 631-473-1768.
