Dec. 5, 2023 (North Adams, MA) BFAIR launches the 2023 Heart of BFAIR Campaign as their annual appeal. 

With a focus on 24/7, 365 care, BFAIR is committed to the people served, and this year’s Annual Heart of BFAIR campaign shows a day-in-the-life of an individual, Corinne, who lives in a BFAIR residence and attends BFAIR’s Day Habilitation Program. 

As a kickoff to the campaign, BFAIR participated in Giving Tuesday, a National Day of Giving, with a generous match of $5,000 from Adams Community Bank, raising over $11,500 in a single day.  

Community members can also purchase handmade gifts crafted by BFAIR program participants to support our campaign. Sales of these items will go towards providing quality, individualized care for our programs and residences. Information about BFAIR Holiday Items can be found here.  

“This year, we were so fortunate to share a day in the life of Corrine, who has received Residential and Day services from BFAIR for over 16 years. Hearing about her daily life, routines, and interests, seeing the relationships with staff created over the years, and understanding the impact of quality, individualized services is truly impactful. We are so thankful for the community support each Heart of BFAIR campaign, and it is through this generosity that we can enhance program resources for people of all abilities,” stated Tara Jacobsen, Director of Development. 

Support our Heart of BFAIR campaign through 12/31, and you will help promote accessibility, create independence, and enhance program resources for over 400 people served by BFAIR. Donations can be made at www.bfar.org/donate/heartofbfair.
