More Than 60 Days of Giving…

Although BACI’s official 60 Days of Giving Campaign ended on April 22 — with our Spring Clean for Earth Day event — the stories of giving continue.One of our Day Services staff, Jill Rowan, recently met a fellow at Four Shores Park. He has Multiple Sclerosis and was parking in the handicap spots at the park, but didn’t have a proper parking pass. He was being harassed by a few vigilant people in the area and was feeling increasingly upset and isolated.Jill encouraged the fellow to get a parking pass, but the process seemed too daunting for him. So she did it for him! Jill got the necessary letter, then went to the agency that hands out the passes (sparc bc) and got one right away.
As Jill says, “We’re all a part of the community. We’re all here to help each other out — whether we have a disability or not. ”
John with his new parking pass!
