Rebecca Bazzoni, executive director for Joe’s Kids, recently was notified that AWS Foundation has awarded Joe’s Kids a three-year grant of $30,000 each year.

Joe’s Kids is a nonprofit pediatric rehabilitation clinic that provides physical, occupational and speech therapy services for children with special needs or developmental delays. This grant will help offset the cost of running its day-to-day operations due to some of the economic impacts from COVID, according to a news release from Joe’s Kids.

“We feel very blessed that AWS Foundation believes in our mission and understands our dedication and passion for serving our children,” Bazzoni stated.

“Families of special needs children face many challenges, and we want them to know they are not in it alone,” she continued. “We will continue to support our families and educate them with the help of funding from AWS Foundation.”
