Help Karen

Our dear friend Karen is in need of our help!

Mariner community has been blessed for many years to have the kindness, generosity, and love of this dedicated public servant working tirelessly to maintain a positive environment for our kids, staff, and community. It is our turn to support, lift up, and embrace her through these difficult times. Karen has triumphed through many adversities in the last few years. Her most recent battle has kept her in the hospital nearly a month. Now that she has returned home she must remain resting and regaining strength on doctors’ orders for the next 4-weeks. We are all missing Karen’s daily smiles and many have ask how they can help. Due to health restrictions we are going to start a GoFundMe for her. This way Karen can use our support in ways that best fit her current needs. I know together the Mariner family can inspire, encourage, and provide what is needed now.
