Pittsfield's Operation Warm: More Than A Coat was a partnership between Pittsfield Fire Fighters Local 2647, the Boys and Girls Club and the Pittsfield Family YMCA.
"We were chosen this year as one of the organizations to receive [the coats]," said Rob Leary, president of Local 2647. "It kind of rotates throughout the state as to what area is to get them and they picked Pittsfield to get this year."
Last year it was a sturdy Star Destroyer, this year it was a fragile bridge across the massive fireplace in the Paresky Center.
The building of the Lego Bridge on Jan. 18 was one of the focal points of the Williams College Winter Study course "The Mathematics of Lego Bricks," taught by associate math professor Steven Miller. The course often includes a time challenge.
