Barack Ferrazzano is pleased to be able to give back to the community in time for the holiday season. Since 2012, the BFKN Foundation has partnered with KIPP Ascend Primary School in order to contribute to the well-being of underprivileged children in the Chicago area. Annually the Firm provides coats, this year topping out at nearly 600 garments, to KIPP Ascend Primary just in time for the often harsh winter season Chicago experiences each year, ensuring each KIPP student has a heavy warm coat to call their own.
The Firm would like to thank RentACrate, who donated their time and services for assisting us with coat distribution. Their involvement has been essential.
KIPP Chicago Schools were established in 2003 and boast an impressive 81% of alumni matriculating to college with a rate of collegiate graduation well above the national average. KIPP Ascend Primary strives to cultivate the students' academic, character and community engagement skills through a rigorous education program presented in a positive and supportive environment.
