NORTH ADAMS — BFAIR (Berkshire Family & Individual Resources) kicks off its 2017 annual campaign this month. The campaign’s title, “Raise the Roof,” describes how BFAIR intends to utilize the funds raised. All proceeds from the Raise the Roof campaign will be used to support renovations and equipment at its newest residential acquisition in Williamstown.
Already the operator of 11 homes throughout the Berkshires, Northampton, and, soon to open, Westfield, BFAIR is no stranger to renovating homes and providing supportive services to people living with developmental disabilities, acquired brain injury, autism, and elders.
“When retrofitting an existing home to fully accommodate the unique individual needs of the residents, there are always challenges,” said Rich Weisenflue, executive director of BFAIR. “With the need for specialized equipment that might not otherwise be funded, our fund-raising efforts help us to offset those expenses, providing vital support to our residents.”
Supporting the Raise the Roof 2017 annual campaign can be done via credit card or check donation. Visit bfair.org for the easy online donation format, or checks payable to BFAIR may be mailed or hand-delivered to its main administrative office in North Adams. All donations made to BFAIR are tax-deductible.
