Organize Your Own Drive

The mission of Friends of Karen is to provide emotional, financial, and advocacy support to children with a life-threatening illness and their families. As a part of this effort, Friends of Karen recruits local volunteers who can help organize material drives in their communities.

  • School Supplies Project: Collect school supplies and backpacks all year round.
