The Pajama Program is an organization that I just heard about and wanted to share with you.
What is the Pajama Program? According to their website, their mission is:
Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need, many of whom are waiting and hoping to be adopted. These children live in various situations including 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 mother or father tuck them in at bedtime with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story. Some of the children we serve are living with their families below the poverty level, in desperate need of food, clothing and shelter.
Every child deserves the feeling of comfort as they go to sleep, and this organization is making sure that happens.
How can you support the Western PA chapter of the Pajama Program?
