Happy to help Friends of Karen, an organization that serves as a guiding light for so many children and their families, Makers Nutrition has donated $200 worth of gift cards. These gift cards, which range in stores, will give families the opportunity to purchase school supplies to ensure their children are ready to start the new school year.
“When thinking of times to donate, ‘back to school,’ doesn’t usually come to mind,” said Director of Multimedia Marketing Rosemary Tambini. “However, going back to school calls for supplies that parents of sick children sometimes may not be able to acquire on their own when their resources are stretched thin by mounting illness-related expenses. That is where companies like ours can step in and provide financial aid to those who could use it the most. We hope this donation gives parents some peace of mind in knowing that their children will be well-prepared to learn on their first day back.”
The team at Makers Nutrition encourages other companies, both inside and out of the supplement manufacturing industry, to donate not just around the holidays, but year-round. Families of children with life-threatening illnesses already have a lot on their mind, and giving them a hand can sure go a long way.
