Hot Projects: Week of April 1


Pajama Folding Party

Tuesday, April 2 From 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Glenwood Park)

Pajama Program promotes a caring and supportive bedtime by giving at-risk children the magical gifts of warm, new pajamas and an enchanting storybook, letting them fall asleep with hope in their hearts for tomorrow. For children who do not have a safe, loving home environment, and who often arrive at shelters with nothing of their own, these gifts are often the only new things they receive. Each Reading Party begins with circle time introductions and ends with our pajama presentation where each child receives a new pair of pajamas. Volunteer to fold pajamas that will be gifted to a Pajama Program child.
