The Gift of a Holiday Dinner for a Critically-ill Child
Easter and Passover are very meaningful holidays, and this year they arrive on the same weekend (April 6-8). Friends of Karen, a children’s charity, wants to make sure that families caring for a child with cancer or another life-threatening illness can celebrate with a holiday meal.
When parents have a critically-ill child, they often have no time to prepare a special meal for a holiday, and may not even have the funds to go shopping after paying for medical and other expenses related to their child’s illness. Friends of Karen’s Easter & Passover Supermarket Gift Card appeal helps solve this problem and gives them a chance to be together as a family. Please contribute an A&P, Shoprite, Stop & Shop or Pathmark gift card so that a family can enjoy the foods that have special meaning for their important holiday. Call Denise Tredwell at 914-617-4052 to participate, or make a secure donation at www.FriendsOfKaren.org , click on the purple Click Here To Donate button, and put “Easter and Passover program” in the place on the form that asks for a Special Message.
