Kids love to get in their pajamas and read a great book before bedtime. So why not combine books and PJ’s into an amazing event that also teaches kids about the importance of giving back?
Three Affton Schools – Affton Early Childhood, Mesnier Primary School, and Gotsch Intermediate School – did just that with their recent Pajama Drive. Children at each school could donate $0.50 or a new pair of pajamas, and they could then wear their own PJ’s to school on a designated day.
The schools collected $725 and 200 brand new pairs of pajamas. Through the Pajama Program, Scholastic Books will now donate one new children’s book to that organization for every new pair of PJ’s the school has collected.
