Springfield MA (November 11, 2022) – The team at Burkhart Pizzanelli is doing their part to spread warmth to 200 children in need of winter coats this season. The local accounting firm has organized a campaign through Operation Warm to purchase the new coats for children served by Square One.

“With the chilly weather fast approaching, keeping our little ones warm is a priority for us,“ says Kristine Allard, Vice President of Development & Communication, Square One. “The gift of a brand new coat extends well beyond its physical warmth. It provides a level of emotional warmth, self-esteem, and confidence that every child needs. We are so grateful to the staff and clients of Burkhart Pizzanelli for sharing in our vision of what it takes to position our children for long-term success.“

The coats will be distributed by Square One staff and employees of Burkhart Pizzanelli on Monday, November 14 at 12:30 p.m. at Square One’s Tommie Johnson Child & Family Center, 255 King Street, Springfield.
