Thank you for participating in the Pajama/Book Charity Drive! I am proud to say that we will be able to contribute 23 pajamas, sizes ranging from 18 year old teenagers to 1 year old babies, and 5 books. Some of us have donated financially to the Pajama Program as well.
I dropped off the pajamas and books tonight at a drop-off site for the Pajama Program, and they will be going to to the kids of Operation SafeHouse in Riverside.
Every child has the right to a good night. Yet, thousands of children across the United States will go to sleep tonight and their bedtime will be missing something.
They may be feeling alone and afraid, in a bed that isn’t theirs, in a shelter that isn’t a home or with families who wish they could give them more.

oh wow, i didnt know about this drive…
I’m sorry Lulu, I just put it together at the last minute with this post on 11/29 https://knittingraysofhope.wordpress.com/2016/11/29/make-an-impact/#comments
I hope to be more organized next year and give enough lead time for our lovely, thoughtful community who wants to participate.
If you want to donate, they still accept donations directly to Pajama Program as it’s still very cold for the next few months. Please visit http://pajamaprogram.org/ for more information
