Gifts for Children Program

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.

Volunteers can help in the following ways:

  • Easter & Passover Project: Collect grocery gift cards to Pathmark, A&P, ShopRite, and Stop & Shop so families may have a special holiday meal.
  • Birthday Program: Collect items for the birthday toy pantry. (Ask about gift wishlist.)
  • Thanksgiving Baskets: Put together a basket of Thanksgiving food and a $20 gift certificate at A&P, Food Emporium, Stop & Shop, or ShopRite for the turkey. (Ask for details in October.)
  • Holiday Adopt-A-Family Program: Fulfill the holiday wishlists of Karen children and families, as well as donate batteries (AA and AAA), gift wrap, bows, tape, and holiday candy. (Call for information in October).
