Deaf Access Services to Host Spring Virtual Fundraiser Events to Support Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community

April 1, 2021: Deaf Access Services, an affiliate of People Inc., is the only non-profit organization in Western New York that bridges gaps in services and communication among the Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing communities. To help support its programs, Deaf Access Services is hosting three ways you can help: 

An online auction will be held from April 8 to15, with a variety of items to win. Check out wnydas.org.

Deaf Access Services will hold its “Celebrating Deaf History” Spring Fundraiser virtually on Thursday, April 15. A virtual tour of the Museum of Deaf History, Arts and Culture, located in Olathe, Kansas, will be provided. If you are curious about the Deaf experience or want to learn about the rich heritage, this will be a great opportunity. Ticket are $11 and can purchased at wnydas.org.

Another way to provide support is with BW’s Smokin’ Barrels Barbecue on Thursday, April 15, from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at People Inc. Administrative Offices, 1219 North Forest, Williamsville. Three meal selections will be available and can be ordered online in advance at wnydas.org or on the day of the event, while supplies last. This is a drive-thru event only. 

To learn more, contact Office@wnydas.org, call 716.833.1637 or videophone at 716.335.9192.

Deaf Access Services continues to provide services remotely, due to the pandemic, in order for its clientele and businesses to access critical services. These include interpreting services, advocacy, employment readiness, educational supports for students, assistive devices and American Sign Language classes. Program information and event updates are posted on the Deaf Access Services Facebook.

Formed in 1983 by a group of dedicated Deaf leaders and volunteers concerned about the welfare of the Deaf community, Deaf Access Services is the only local non-profit community organization solely dedicated to serve the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities. Deaf Access Services envisions a community where all people experience equality, empowerment and inclusion to lead lives full of possibilities.
