The cold weather is right around the corner and unfortunately, thousands of area children will not have a warm coat this winter, but Yanni Family Orthodontics is working to change that. The West Springfield and Tolland, CT offices are taking part in the Salvation Army’s Annual Coats for Kids Campaign. YFO is one of many drop spot locations where residents can bring in new or gently used coats to be given out at the Salvation Army’s Distribution Event in November. The coats will go to families who are in need this winter season.


Dr. Janice Yanni, owner of Yanni Family Orthodontics, is confident that her patients will be extremely giving. “Our patients are always stepping up to the plate to help local causes that we take part in, and we couldn’t do anything without the support of our patients,” says Dr.Yanni. “We are confident that our collection box will be overflowing with coats.”


You do not have to be a patient of Dr. Yanni’s to drop off a coat. Everyone is encouraged to stop by the West Springfield, MA or Tolland, CT offices. The collection ends Friday, October 18th
