Central & Western Massachusetts Chapter

Chapter President: Christine Ohristo, christineo@pajamaprogram.org

Christine Ohristo, Central Massachusetts Chapter President, lives in Charlton with her husband. They have two daughters in college. One of the most important things to her as a parent has always been instilling a love of reading in her daughters. She has no greater memories than the bedtime routines they shared.

As a third grade teacher in the Auburn Public School System for over twenty ears, Christine has dedicated her life to educating children on the importance of reading. Each year, the school runs a reading incentive program that rewards students for reading by donating books to various organizations. When she read about Pajama Program and our founder, Genevieve Piturro, she knew it would be a wonderful organization for the school to fundraise for. She gradually became more involved and now shares the joy of reading by gathering pajama and book donations for those in her community.

North Shore Chapter

Chapter President: Erika Goldwater, erika@pajamaprogram.org

Follow the North Shore Chapter on Facebook!

Erika Goldwater, North Shore Chapter President, learned about Pajama Program when a friend in another state asked for donations. As a mother of three, she was moved by how the seemingly simple gifts of new pajamas and books can help make a child feel special, loved, and sleep a little better at night. The North Shore Chapter is dedicated to helping local children, and thanks to caring friends, neighbors, and businesses, they know they can make a difference.
