The Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive
Many thanks to Katie Roofe and the Lucky Ducks classroom for organizing this at the BECC!
It’s time for the annual Scholastic Reading Club Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive benefiting Pajama Program, a nonprofit organization that provides new pajamas and books to children in need—especially those living in group homes, shelters, foster care, and orphanages.
Since 2009, caring classrooms across the country have risen to the challenge and donated nearly 250,000 pairs of new pajamas. The Scholastic Reading Club has more than matched those numbers with nearly 600,000 new books donated to Pajama Program.
Our class wants to be a part of this drive so that we can help make a better bedtime for these children. Together we can help the Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive reach even more kids with pj’s and books.
If you and your child are able to participate, please have your child bring in a new pair of pajamas to school by December 12, 2013. The Lucky Ducks will be collecting the pajamas to be donated.
Here are some simple guidelines for the pajamas:
Pajamas must be brand-new.
Pajamas in all sizes are needed—from newborn to adult.
Pajamas must be in complete sets or nightgowns.
Pajamas in children’s sizes must be manufactured as pajamas—this ensures that they are flame-retardant and safe.
Thank you for helping us share the gift of a good night’s sleep and a sweet bedtime story.
