Dec. 2, 2021 (North Adams, MA) – BFAIR launched its Heart of BFAIR end of Year Campaign on December 1, 2021 following a successful Giving Tuesday campaign sponsored by Adams Community Bank.
Giving Tuesday, the Tuesday following Thanksgiving each year, is a Global Day of Giving. Supporters contributed to BFAIR’s mission to provide accessible and individualized services for people with developmental disabilities, autism, and acquired brain injury.
Our generous matching sponsor, Adams Community Bank, matched any donations made on November 30 up to $5,000 so donations went even further raising over $9,000 in a single day.
Our Heart of BFAIR Campaign highlights all the various aspects of what makes our organization unique as we put individual needs, personal goals, and quality care ahead of all else. Donations to this campaign by our community of supporters helps BFAIR serve people with disabilities by offsetting out-of-pocket expenses they may have, creating accessibility features to their homes and programs, and promoting independence.
One individual, Casey, first moved into a BFAIR Residence and became a Member of our Day Habilitation program in 1997. Throughout the 24 years Casey has been receiving Residential and Day services, his care is specific to his developmental, social, leisure and medical needs. Whether it is dancing, organizing his beloved stackers, or enjoying the outdoors, Casey love to be active is embraced by his staff. Diagnosed with a visual impairment several years ago, Casey’s staff made thoughtful modifications so that he could continue to enjoy being outside and do so safely.
Now through December 31, BFAIR’s End of Year Campaign, the Heart of BFAIR, is accepting donations via cash, check, text-to-give by texting CASEY to 50155, or online at https://bit.ly/heartofbfair.
