Give the Gift of a Holiday Dinner for a Critically-Ill Child


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 Easter or Passover with a holiday meal.

Purdys, NY, March 16, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Friends of Karen Helps Families Celebrate Easter and Passover

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 Now" button, and put “Easter and Passover program” in the place on the form that asks for a Special Message.

Friends of Karen is the only organization that provides emotional, financial and advocacy support to families of a child with cancer or another life-threatening illness, from diagnosis through treatment. Since 1978, we have touched the lives of over 11,800 children in the New York Metro region. With compassion, dedication and expertise, Friends of Karen helps sustain the entire family during an overwhelmingly frightening, confusing and turbulent time.

Friends of Karen serves all qualified families without regard to race, religion, or national origin. For more information, visit www.FriendsOfKaren.org or call 914-617-4040.
