SOMERS, N.Y.-Thanks to the support of the community, the Somers Lions Club was able to donate more than 40 gifts to Friends of Karen through its fourth annual Giving Tree campaign.

Friends of Karen is a North Salem-based charity that provides support to children battling life-threatening illnesses.

“I’d like to thank the office of Somers Smiles in the Heritage 202 Center and Sterling National Bank (formerly Astoria Bank) for volunteering their spaces to each host a Giving Tree,” said Tracy Reimann, chair of the campaign.
