Austin Chapter

Linda Hunter, Austin Chapter Co-President, has lived in Austin for the last 14 years. She has three children and four grandchildren. She has always taped books for her grandchildren and mailed them the tape and the books because they live far apart. Linda learned about Pajama Program when she was watching the Oprah show. As soon as she found out Austin didn’t have a chapter, she knew what her mission would be. She knows that every child deserves to have the special moment at the end of their day to cuddle up with their own pajamas and a good book to read.

Susan Malone, Austin Chapter Co-President, lives in Austin with her husband and two daughters. After her first daughter was born, she saw Genevieve on The Oprah Show. She had just left her corporate job to stay home with her daughter, and knew she wanted to give back to something she believed in. For years, she held outdoor movie nights with her neighbors and the “admission” was a pair of pajamas. When she saw that an official chapter was launching, she officially joined Linda to become the Austin Chapter Co-President.

El Paso Chapter

Leslie Perkins, El Paso Chapter President, was born and raised in El Paso. She was a high school social studies teacher until she had her first child. When she found out about Pajama Program, she was inspired. Having worked with so many children while she was a teacher, she loved the fact that she would be helping children. She has always felt very passionately about helping kids and found that Pajama Program was the perfect way to help while still getting to stay home with her son.
