for friendships, integrated employment and leadership for people with
intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), is pleased to announce a generous grant from the Golisano Foundation of $300,000. The grant will help Best Buddies expand its work in Southwest Florida.
“With the grant provided by the Golisano Foundation, Best Buddies will
