Second Grade Pajama Drive

 There's nothing like the feeling you get when you are curled up with a good book wearing a soft, warm pair of PJ's. At least that's what we 2nd graders think. Please help us give this warm, fuzzy feeling to other children in need.

We 2nd graders have joined the "Scholastic Reading Club Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive," which benefits the non-profit organization, Pajama Program. This group provides new pajamas and books to children in need--especially those living in group homes, shelters, foster care, and orphanages. We are collecting the pajamas and Scholastic provides the books. Please join our quest to provide the comfort of new pajamas to children not as fortunate as we are.

Here are some guidelines:
Must be brand new
All sizes (newborn-adult) are needed
Must be a complete set
Must be manufactured as pajamas to ensure they are flame retardant
Pajamas can be given to any 2nd grade classroom. Please send your donation by December 9.
