Northern, IL Chapter

Chapter President, Rebecca Helkowski

Hello, my name is Rebecca Helkowski. My family lives about 30 miles northwest of Chicago, IL with a very large extended family all around us. As a parent of two, my favorite part of the day is cuddling with my children just before bed or in the early morning hours talking about all the wonderful experiences we have had or are coming our way.

One of the very first routines we instituted with each child was pajama time and it has been such a special and critical part of their day from the start. I very much look forward to all the nights ahead of us centered around bedtime routines involving comfy pajamas and many, many books.

I know how special and important those times are for a child and I wish to help bring that to as many children as possible. I hope to have a successful chapter in Northern Illinois and help as many children as I can. I am also an associate board member of a local children's shelter, and I know how significant the need is and how much the children truly enjoy having pajamas and books of their own.

If you are interested in volunteering, hosting a pajama drive, donating, or would like more information on becoming a receiving agency, please contact me at rebeccah@pajamaprogram.org.

Thank you for helping to make a difference in the lives of local children.
