WARSAW — Cardinal Services is one of 11 nonprofit organizations to receive a surprise $50,000 award from AWS Foundation. The agencies, all serving people with disabilities in Northeast Indiana, were informed of the awards via a Zoom meeting last week.
Cardinal CEO Randy Hall praised AWS Foundation and its board in a news release.
“They are extremely sensitive to our struggle to meet the needs of those we serve. Clearly, they understand that supporting an individual at this time can be a huge challenge. We’re deeply grateful for the generosity of AWS Foundation and their Board of Directors,” Hall said.
Hall went onto say that AWS Foundation has funded three emergency funding grant requests from Cardinal in the two months since the stay home order. This latest award brings their total gift over that time to $61,600.
“In a time when many businesses closed due to Covid19, the staff of Cardinal Services continued to work. Not only did they provide services, they had to do it taking on increased costs of PPE and with limitations on what they could do. AWS Foundation was moved by their continued services and wanted to help with some of their added costs,” said AWS Foundation CEO Patti Hays.
