Pajama and Bedtime Story Drive!
Pajama Program provides new pajamas and books  to children in need nationwide, many of whom are waiting to be adopted. These children live in group homes, shelters and temporary housing facilities and are shuffled often from one place to another. Many of them have been abandoned, abused or neglected. Most of these children have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a parent tuck them in at bedtime with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story. Some of the children are living with their families below the poverty level, in desperate need of food, clothing and shelter. These simple gift of pajamas and books llet the children know that someone cares – sometimes these are the only new things they have ever received.
Where: Kristin Broderick’s classroom 1-103
When: Wednesday March 22 2:30-4:00pm
Chaperones are NOT needed for this project. Pick up will be at 4:00pm in class 1-103.
Who: This event is open to 2 students from each class K-5 
Twelve (2 from each grade)  LL students will meet on Wednesday 3/22 after school in Kristin’s classroom and help decorate boxes in which pajamas and books will be collected.. While decorating, the  students will  learn about the program and the drive in order to present the information to  their classmates and encourage participation in the school-wide drive.
To donate :  Pajamas need to be New, Unused, and the pajamas should be a complete set (top and bottom) or nightgown. Sizes can range from infant to 5yrs old. Please send in a brand new book of your child’s favorite bedtime story.
