WARSAW — Rebecca Bazzoni, executive director for Joe’s Kids, recently learned that the Dane & Mary Louise Miller Foundation has awarded Joe’s Kids $275,000 in a grant.

A $25,000 matching grant will provide a 1:1 match for new donors or a 2:1 match for new child sponsors.

Through the child sponsorship program at Joe’s Kids, donors commit to recurring monthly giving increments of $40, $80, $160 or more to help offset the cost of providing therapies for special kids in the community.

Joe’s Kids is a nonprofit pediatric rehabilitation clinic that provides physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and tutoring services to help each child reach their maximum level of independence.

Joe’s Kids recently moved into their new facility at 1692 W. Lake St., Warsaw, and the remaining $250,000 of this grant will help offset the cost of renovating their new facility.

“We are very blessed to have the Dane & Mary Louise Miller Foundation in our community. This foundation believes in our mission and understands our dedication and passion for serving our children,” Bazzoni said.
