No stranger to Friends of Karen’s wonderful programs, Makers Nutrition is filling the holiday wish lists of teenagers assisted by the non-profit in the organization’s holiday Adopt-a-Family season.
Gift cards are generally popular, but among teens especially. These gift cards are powerful—powerful in the sense that they allow teenagers to purchase whatever will make them smile this Christmas. That is why Makers Nutrition has decided to donate $500-worth of gift cards to five teens who are part of the Friends of Karen family. These gift cards will help teens with life-threatening illnesses and their brothers and sisters, making this holiday brighter.
“On behalf of my team here at Makers Nutrition, I would like to say that we are sincerely happy to help Friends of Karen any way we can,” said CEO and President of Makers Nutrition Jason Provenzano. “Everyone knows someone with an illness, many of whom are in our own family. No one should go a holiday without feeling the joy that Friends of Karen works so hard to provide young individuals and their families. We are proud to help those individuals and their parents especially who might not have the financial means to get that skateboard or video game, sweatshirt or sneakers their child really wanted this Christmas.”
