BENEFITING: Pajama Program, Inc.
Welcome to the 5th Annual Max & Mady Pajama Drive! For the last five year we have been raising money and collecting pajamas for the benefit of Pajama Program. Last year we raised $1,700 and collected 293 pair of pajamas and 164 new books for children in need. Some of you have been very generous to us over the years and some of you might be new and wondering "What is pajama drive? Who is Pajama Program"? Well, let us give you some back ground - this year marks the 15th Anniversary of Pajamaprogram.org - Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need nationwide, many of whom are waiting to be adopted. These children live in group homes, shelters and temporary housing facilities and are shuffled often from one place to another. Many of them have been abandoned, abused or neglected. Most of these children have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a parent tuck them in at bedtime with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story. Some of the children are living with their families below the poverty level, in desperate need of food, clothing and shelter. These two simple gifts of pajamas and books let the children know that someone cares - sometimes these are the only new things they have ever received. Will you help us meet our goals this year? They are lofty - we are trying to raise $2,000.00 and collect 300 pair of pajamas and 200 books. We will be collecting until December 1st. If you are local to Charlotte please drop off daily at our front door in the bin provided. If you would like to donate but don't want to shop, please use this link to donate direct to pajamaprogram.org They receive 100% of the donation and the service fees are charged to you, so they get 100% of the money pledged. Thank you for your continued support! Love, Max & Mady
