Barack Ferrazzano is pleased to be able to serve the local community this holiday season by means of our annual coat drive. The BFKN Foundation has partnered with KIPP Ascend Primary School since 2012, in the effort to foster the well-being of underprivileged children in the Chicago area during the harsh winter season. Our annual coat drive is one of our most significant community outreach programs, providing winter essentials to children who would otherwise go without. This year alone the Firm provided nearly 600 coats.
The Firm would like to thank RentACrate, who donated their time and services for assisting us with coat delivery. Their involvement has been an essential part in carrying out our efforts. We would also like to thank our Barack Ferrazzano family for their monetary and volunteer contributions that have made this drive a continued success.
