Karen in the Community
"In our family, one of us is orderly and one is not. Karen's visits supply speedy organization to all the creeping stuff that otherwise threatens chaos. Not only is she efficient, cheerful and caring Karen is indispensable and understanding friend."
H. Baldwin, Lincoln, MA
What does philanthropy mean to you? To me it means giving back, helping your neighbors or supporting people in need. I know I am no Bill and Melinda Gates or Warren Buffet. But I am so proud of all the work I have done in this area. I am showcasing a charity every month to help their public outreach.
