Chapter Co-President, Geri Schleich — Geri Schleich grew up and was educated in Utica, NY. She and husband Ray have lived in New Jersey all of their married lives. She is the proud mother of Paul, mother-in-law of Paula, and grandmother of Derrick. Geri has spent many years volunteering for church and school-related organizations. Her work experiences includes running the branch library in her community and being a healthcare lecturer/counselor in a local hospital. Geri was looking for volunteer work that would allow her to feel that she was making a difference in people’s lives when she heard Genevieve Piturro being interviewed on the radio about Pajama Program. Geri knew immediately that helping needy children was something that she could have a real passion for, and that Pajama Program was an organization worth helping. Since that time, Geri feels that her work for Pajama Program has been more rewarding for her personally than she could ever imagine. For further information about New Jersey drives or events, please contact Chapter President Geri Schleich. Thanks for helping the children.
Chapter Co-President, Denise Violand - Denise Violand has been involved with the NJ Chapter of the Pajama Program since 2007. She was drawn to volunteer with the program because it afforded the opportunity to provide such basic items as pajamas and books to those to whom it would mean so much. Denise loves planning events for the children and she especially enjoys seeing the joy on the children’s faces when they receive their pjs and books. Geri asked Denise in September 2012 to be the Co-Chapter President and Denise is honored to be serving with her. Together they will continue to build the NJ Chapter to serve as many children in the state as possible. Denise and her husband, Ron, live in Middletown, NJ.
