We’re Collecting New PJ’s & Books for Kids!

pajama-program-207x300The Pajama Program is a not-for-profit organization that collects new, unworn pajamas and new books to bring to local children in need.

Pajama Program currently has 63 chapters in 40 States and operates three (3) Reading Centers:  New York, NY, Yonkers, NY and Red Bank, NJ.

For the past few years Ron Cognetta based in our Stamford, CT commercial moving office has been leading the Pajama Program collection for Clancy.  If you were not already aware, Ron and other members of our team have stepped in to help with the collecting, sorting, and delivering new pajamas and new books from various clients.  Our warehouse in Newtown, CT (Fairfield County) is currently being used for storing donations as they are prepared for distribution.

The Pajama Program Helps Kids in Need

As simple as it is, a new set of pajamas and new book to read provides much needed comfort to the children the program benefits.  These children are living in shelters and group homes and are often shuffled from one temporary home to another. They have been abused or abandoned, and in many cases, have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a mother or father tuck them in at bedtime in clean night clothes with a story read to them or their own book to read.  Through the Pajama Program, we are contributing to a warmer, more loving bedtime.  With your help, we are making a big difference in these children’s lives!

How You Can Help

Pajama-Program-Clancy-flyerPlease stop by our main office at 2963 Route 22 Patterson, NY office (across the street from Thunder Ridge) and for a $1 donation, your name will be added to the entryway.

Every $10 we collect = 1 set of PJ’s + 1 new book for a child.

Donations of NEW, unworn pajamas (or a nightgown) for infants through age 17 are also welcomed along with NEW books. These children rarely get anything new which is why this gift is so meaningful to them.

Please have any cash, check, new bedtime clothing or new book donations left at our reception desk by no later than 5pm Friday, October 27.

Business owners looking to donate excess inventory (new items only): Please call ahead if you have pallets or large boxes for delivery or pickup.
