Pajamas will be collected throughout the month of October. All donations will be distributed to various homeless shelters, group homes and orphanages throughout the immediate area. Donated pajamas can range from newborn to adult sizes and must be new.
The Pajama Program is an organization that provides comfort and love in the way of new pajamas to children in need and those who are waiting for a permanent home. By providing pajamas, they help to create a warm and nurturing bedtime environment for vulnerable youngsters living under difficult circumstances. Thousands of children around the country go to bed cold and without clean pajamas every night. It is the mission of the Pajama Program to make sure fewer children are cold at bedtime this year.
Students and faculty at Joseph E. Soehl Middle School are very excited to participate in this community service project. Last year, the school collected over 200 pajamas and donated them to area children through the Pajama Program.
You can drop off the pajamas in Room 216A at Soehl Middle School, 300 East Henry Street between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, contact Isabella Scocozza at (908) 486-0139 or visit www.pajamaprogram.org
