WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Wild Oats donated $3,900 to BFAIR
through its Round Up for Change Program. These monies will directly support individuals with disabilities.
"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," Tara Jacobsen, BFAIR's fundraising and grant manager, said. "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."
Berkshire Family and Individual Resources was selected as the August charity of choice for the Wild Oats Market Round Up for Change Program.
During the month of August, customers visited Wild Oats Market at 320 Main St. and rounded up the total amount of their purchases to the next whole dollar at checkout. One hundred percent of the money collected went directly to supporting the individuals served and programs and services provided by BFAIR.
Since June 2020, this program has generated more than $40,000 for local nonprofits.
