Pajama Program, Inc. wrote -
When we look back on our childhood, it’s the simple things that warm our hearts the most. They include a soft kiss on the cheek from our Mother or Father. Hearing our favorite story read to us again and again; and of course hearing the words “I love you” each night while being tucked into bed.
Simple pleasures but impossible for many of the children we serve. Some have been abused or neglected. Others may live with their families in small apartments shared with others. Their bed could be a blanket on the floor.
Since 2004 the NJ Chapter has distributed over 125,000 pairs of new pajamas and new books to children in all 21 counties throughout the state. Our goal in 2014 is to be able to reach out to 35,000 children as we celebrate our 10th anniversary.
All of money that we receive will benefit children in NJ. They will receive the gift of a new pair of pajamas, a new book and the knowledge that someone cares about them.
