Lorin Konner Sherman Memorial Fund
In 2006, Kenneth and Phyllis Konner established the Lorin Konner Sherman Memorial Fund in loving memory of their daughter, Lorin Konner Sherman. This heartfelt initiative has made a significant impact by raising over $253,000 for Bergen County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). The fund's noble mission is to support foster children in our community, ensuring their safety, well-being, and the pursuit of permanent homes. Through the tireless efforts of volunteers and the unwavering commitment of the Konner family, this fund continues to be a beacon of hope for vulnerable children, providing them with a voice, advocacy, and a chance for a brighter future. Lorin's legacy lives on through this remarkable endeavor, touching the lives of countless young hearts in need.
