HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. / DECEMBER 18, 2019 – Makers Nutrition has announced its Christmas donation to Friends of Karen, a charitable organization that provides emotional, financial, and advocacy support for children with a life-threatening illness and their families in order to help keep them stable, functioning, and able to cope.
This Christmas, the team at Makers is reflecting on the fortune of time, something many families of ill children especially do not take for granted. These are the people who remind us it is not how much time we have, but how we spend that time.
Pleased to have raised money again for an organization that makes such an impact on the community, Makers Nutrition is thrilled to learn its donation will be making a difference in five teenage lives.
