Cans for karma
Shana Swain began Cans for Karma in 2011. When pregnant with her first child, she saw the need to educate her daughter on service and giving to her community. Since then, Shana and her daughters have hosted a food and supply drive every year.
The last 4 years have been dedicated to donating to My Sister's House after Shana realized the importance of serving women and children in dire need and shifted the focus of Cans for Karma. Eight years ago, the first drive was enough to fit on a beverage cart. The past two drives have garnered so much support, two vans were used to transport the goods to MSH.
She reaches out to her family and friends through word-of-mouth and social media posts. Friends contact her to arrange a pickup or drop off meeting time and location, and she and her daughters store and arrange the donations in their own home.
She hopes to continue her family's service to the community each year by hosting Cans for Karma. Thank you, Shana and everyone else who donated!! These items will provide much-needed comfort to the women in our shelter.
