Philadelphia and Eastern, PA Chapter
Chapter President, Katherine Fazzini
I first learned about the Pajama Program on an airplane flight home to Philadelphia from visiting my mother in Florida. I sat next to a nice couple …we got chatting about being empty nesters. I shared how I missed reading bedtime stories to my kids now that they were all grown up! The nice couple immediately connected me with their NIECE’S Pajama Program! I believe in life there are no coincidences. Only God winks!
My husband of 28 years and I have been blessed with four beautiful children ranging in age from 20 to 27. They all have fond memories of cozying up with a good bedtime story in some cozy PJs!
I have worked for the past 10 years as a Reading Specialist and substitute teacher in the Philadelphia Schools, both public and parochial. I have volunteered at our local church, in our schools, and in various community organizations, but none that pulled at my heartstrings like this one! I look forward to combining my love of reading with my calling to rally our communities to help children in need in Eastern Pennsylvania thru joining the Pajama Program!
