Pajama Program Atlanta 1 Year Anniversary
Through Friday June 22 various shifts (Atlanta, GA- Glenwood Park)
Pajama Program Reading Center Atlanta is celebrating its one year anniversary. At Pajama Program, we believe that every child, regardless of their circumstances, has the right to a loving good night. Since we can't be with every child at bedtime, PajamaProgram Reading Centers are how we reach more children- giving us additional opportunities to show unconditional love and help children feel appreciated, supported, and cared for. Volunteers are invited to share their love of reading with the children we serve. Our Reading Parties begin with circle time introductions and then we begin reading in pairs (1 child to 1 adult) or small groups. During the Reading Party, the children receive a snack, a new book of their choice, and a new pair of pajamas.
