NORTH ADAMS — Working together with the Wild Oats Round Up for Change Program, the market’s community donation program, BFAIR raised more than $3,900 directly supporting individuals with disabilities.
BFAIR was selected as the August charity of choice for the Wild Oats Market Round Up for Change Program. Since June 2020, this program has generated more than $40,000 for local nonprofits.
During the month of August, customers visited Wild Oats Market at 320 Main St. in Williamstown and rounded up the total amount of their purchases to the next whole dollar at checkout. All the money collected went directly to supporting the individuals served and programs and services provided by BFAIR.
“We are humbled by the generosity that we received during the Round Up for Change program by the Wild Oats Co-Op and community members,” said Tara Jacobsen, BFAIR’s Fundraising & Grants manager. “This support will help BFAIR to meet the unique needs of the people we support, such as health and wellness, personal safety, technology tools to support more independent lifestyles, and accessibility improvements.”
