Help support families - Organize a material 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.

 Below are just a few examples on how you can help.

  • Coloring Book Drive – Collect new coloring books and crayons for our kids in the hospital.
  • Birthday Program – Collect items for our birthday toy pantry. Call for wish list of gifts.
  • School Supplies Project Collect school supplies and backpacks. All year round.
  • Pantry Drive – Collect paper towels, tissues, hand sanitizer wipes, baby wipes.
  • Coin Harvest – Organize and run a loose change collection to benefit Friends of Karen or recycle cans and bottles and donate the change to Friends of Karen.
  • Gift Certificate Drive – collect $5 gift certificates to iTunes, Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s, Subway, Burger King, Pizza Hut and Starbuck’s.
  • Tag Sale – Turn your junk into treasure and organize a tag sale to benefit Friends of Karen. We’ll start you off with a box of tag sale “stuff.”
