The 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, shelter and temporary housing facilities. Many of them 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.
Artsplace is collecting brand-new pajamas in all sizes, from newborn to adult. Pajamas must be complete sets — a top and bottom or a nightgown. Pajamas are especially needed for the winter months.
Artsplace is also collecting new children’s books for children of all ages.
Drop off in the marked plastic bin outside the front door, under the purple awning to Artsplace, 1220 Waterbury Rd., now through Thursday, Dec. 17. Artsplace may be reached at (203) 272-2787.
