July 12, 2022 (North Adams, MA) In June of this year, BFAIR was honored as the state charity for the Massachusetts Fraternal Order of the Eagles (FOE) Auxiliary.   

Sharon Barrett, a BFAIR employee since 2012, chose BFAIR as the state charity during her past year as the MA State Auxiliary President. The motto of the FOE, ‘people helping people’ resonates through chapters state, country, and worldwide. Because of the dedicated and generous work of Sharon alongside Betty Cahill-Corbin, North Adams 310, MA State Auxiliary, MA State Aerie, and the Fraternal Order of the Eagles, BFAIR received over $15,000 in grants and donations.  

As Tara Jacobsen, Fundraising and Grants Manager shares, “This impactful donation will provide accessibility equipment for BFAIR’s residential and day habilitation services, as well as provide resources to promote independence and offset out-of-pocket costs for participants across programs.”
