Buffalo, NY Chapter
Chapter Co-President, Jenn Bishara
I live in Clarence Center, which is a suburb of Buffalo, NY with my husband Michael, and our three children, Zachary, Ethan, Abby and our dogs Indy & Shorty. I have been doing the "bedtime routine" for over twenty years, and I can honestly say that I never grow tire of it. It is a chance to snuggle up with the kids at night and, now that they are older, a chance to recap the day and share a book or two! It has always been an important part of our day, and I wish that all children could have that experience. In participating in Pajama Program, we have the opportunity to make this happen for many children.
I have had the opportunity to continue to grow and lead our local chapter. Our past president and volunteers were instrumental in starting the local chapter, and I hope that I can continue to build upon that success. I am grateful to our community who have been so giving and generous. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
