Help Ms. Karen stay afloat

Karen Gaskins is the amazing owner of the small business, Ms. Karen's Place, where she specializes in children's haircuts. Her business was shuttered for months at the beginning of the pandemic and she has had to pay rent this whole time.  She was briefly able to reopen, taking careful precautions to protect her clients and herself.  But now she will be shut again, due to our county's new rules, for at least the next month. In addition, she was recently involved in a serious car accident, and top of that, her son and his girlfriend just had a baby and they are having their own financial difficulties. She is trying to keep afloat herself and help her son and his family. 

Anyone who has taken their kids to her knows just what a wonderful a job she does and how loving and kind she is.  For years, she has taken care of children in our community--comforting little ones who are nervous about their first haircuts, and making older ones look good for everything from family pictures, to special occasions, to ordinary days at school.  Now it's our turn to help her.  Donations will make a huge difference as she struggles to pay rent for her business and home and keep her family afloat.  Please help this wonderful woman during this difficult time.
