Chapter President, Denise Violand

Denise Violand has been involved with the NJ Chapter of Pajama Program since 2007. She was drawn to volunteer when she learned about how Pajama Program got started and that such basic items such as pajamas and books were not part of many children’s lives. She is inspired by the joy she sees on those children served and loves planning events for various groups. Her goal is to build the NJ Chapter, serve as many children as possible, and increase her volunteer and sponsor involvement. Denise, who is a dental hygienist, lives in Middletown, NJ, with her husband, Ron, who is also a Pajama Program volunteer.
