JAF Road Trip 2023- Rhode Island

The Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) is so excited to kick off our Road Trip in Rhode Island!  Since 2008,  JAF has been blessed to partner with so many wonderful people and organizations in our mission to help Rhode Island cancer patients and their family members. Together, we have provided more than $750,000 in assistance and resources to help with everyday household expenses.

To celebrate our 15th Anniversary, Joe and Jen Andruzzi are traveling to see our Rhode Island community and to share updates on the Foundation’s work, how we’ve expanded our resources for cancer patients, and how you can get involved.  Of course, JAF has included stops at some of Rhode Island’s favorite destinations for some fun.  See our schedule below to see where you can join us.  We look forward to seeing you at an event!
