  Donate Joseph "Joey" Banik Memorial Fund
Joey Banik Fund

The Joseph "Joey" Banik Memorial Fund was established by the Banik family in memory of their son Joey who was born on March 20, 2021 and passed away on May 7, 2021.

Joey was the apple of his parent's eye. He loved snuggles, swaying in his parents' arms to music, and looking around at the "big wide world". His very best friends were his three big sisters, who he stared at for hours. He was a strong little boy who fought hard to bring his family six weeks of absolute love and joy.

The fund, which benefits The Arc of Northeastern PA, supports individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities in acquiring education, life skills training, and/or employment. An annual award, the Joey Banik Memorial Award, will be given each year by The Arc at their annual meeting.
