New York City, NY Chapter
Chapter President, Ana Maria Fraioli
Ana M. Fraioli is an administrative assistant at Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, one of the world’s leading commercial real estate advisory firms. She joined Pajama Program as a volunteer in 2003.
In addition to some administrative duties for Pajama Program, Ana coordinates daily evening and weekend reading programs at the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS). Children from all five boroughs are taken to ACS to enter the foster care system. Readings are also held during the day at Pajama Program Headquarters, located at 114 East 39th Street in NYC. If you are interested in volunteering during the day, please contact Najamah at Najamah@pajamaprogram.org.
Night time really should be a special time for children of all ages. Children deserve to be in warm pajamas with a book to read – so we have and will continue to provide as much care and attention as possible to meet these needs. I am very fortunate and honored to be part of Pajama Program and thank my husband, my sister, my co-workers, friends and VOLUNTEERS for all their support, guidance and time. Besides providing pajamas and books – we have been able to create something spectacular and wonderful.
