We have officially given more than 2 MILLION pajamas and books to children in need! Thank you for helping!
“Danger Season” is here – the temperatures are dropping and it’s cold at night for the children. This year we have an extremely long wait list for pajamas and books. Thousands of our children are cold and frightened and we need to keep them in warm, clean pajamas through the night with a bedtime book to lessen their fears as they close their eyes to sleep. Thank you for wrapping your arms around them so they feel loved.
About Pajama Program
Your Support is Essential!
The Pajama Program depends on the generous support of volunteers, supporters, event hosts, pajama drive sponsors, and of course, donations of cozy new pajamas and new children’s books.
Pajama Program currently has 63 chapters in 40 States and operates three (3) Reading Centers: New York, NY, Yonkers, NY and Red Bank, NJ.
“So many children are without warm bedtime clothing and education so we developed a creative program to provide some of both,” says Founder and Executive Director Genevieve Piturro. “We intend to make a difference – giving back is what it’s all about.”
