Cook County & Eastern, IL Chapter
Chapter President, Rebecca Nilson
Hi, my name is Rebecca Nilson and I live in Chicago with my husband and two children. I work in the accounting/finance field and enjoy giving of my time and energy to organizations that mirror my beliefs and mission. I am an active participant for several not-for-profits that relate to my children’s education, my profession and now Pajama Program.
Over the past several years, I had been looking for an organization that my kids could understand and participate in and had a mission I feel passionate about as well. About a year ago, I was reading TheSkimm and Pajama Program was featured in it. The bedtime routine with my kids is one of my favorite parts of the day. It is my time with them to snuggle in comfy pajamas, listen, and read to expand their world and knowledge through stories. That is why I was so moved by Genevieve’s story and knew that I wanted to be a part of this organization.
If you are also interested in volunteering, hosting a pajama drive, donating or would like to receive more information as a possible receiving organization, please contact me.
