Cancellations: It is with great regret, we’re canceling the 20th Annual Berkshire Disabilities Legislative Breakfast scheduled for Friday, March 20, 2020. With 250 people registered, and the entire Berkshire delegation of elected officials scheduled to attend, it is unfortunate we have to cancel this year’s event. While our elected officials remain supportive and work with all of us as partners, the breakfast is a great opportunity for our voices to be heard. We look forward to opportunities in the near future to articulate the challenges and needs of the Berkshire disabilities community.
Event partners: Ad Lib, Inc.; Autism Connections; BAROCO Corporation; Berkshire County Arc; Berkshire Family & Individual Resources, Inc.; Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts; Department of Developmental Services; Goodwill Industries of the Berkshires; Guidewire, Inc.; Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts; Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission; ServiceNet; and United Cerebral Palsy Association of Berkshire County.
Please Note: We are NOT ACCEPTING DONATIONS OR REQUESTS for Durable Medical Equipment at this time HOWEVER we would like for you to call our main number and speak with our receptionists who will place you on a waiting list to either have your donation picked up or your request delivered to you at a later date.
