Balise Auto Continues to Drive Square One’s Campaign for Healthy Kids

Springfield, MA (April 7, 2022) – Balise Auto may be best known for its work in the automobile industry but to many community-based organizations, their impact goes way beyond selling cars.

The longtime Square One supporter recently raised $4,000 to support the non-profit agency’s Campaign for Healthy Kids.  A check presentation will be held on Friday, April 8, 10:00 a.m. at Square One, 1095 Main Street, Springfield.

The funds were raised through Balise’s “Tires to Inspire” initiative, where donations were made to Square One when customers purchased a set of new tires.

“Square One does so much to set local children and their families up for success,” says Alex Balise, Director of Marketing for Balise Auto. “Education and community development are at the core of our charitable giving philosophy, so we couldn’t be happier to highlight their amazing programs and continue to support Square One in their mission.”

“We love that Balise takes such a creative approach to supporting our work with children and families,” says Kristine Allard, Vice President of Development & Communication for Square One. “Not only do they give generously on a corporate level, but they encourage their customers to get involved, as well. That impact is far reaching for the children and families we serve. We are so grateful for their partnership.”

Square One’s Campaign for Healthy Kids is a multi-year fund development initiative focused on the agency’s commitment to providing healthy meals, physical fitness, social-emotional wellbeing, and a healthy learning environment.

Square One currently provides early learning services to over 500 infants, toddlers and school-age children each day; and family support services to 1,500 families each year, as they work to overcome the significant challenges in their lives.
