Boston Bruins PJ Drive continues through March 15
Seekonk Library has teamed up with the Boston Bruins to be a drop-off location for the Boston Bruins’ 12th Annual Pajama Drive that benefits DCF Kids and Cradles to Crayons. The local collection goal for this drop-off location is 125 pairs of pajamas for children and teens in need to be collected between February 1 - March 15 . The pj's will be distributed to children in Massachusetts who "don’t know the comforting feeling of putting on PJs before settling down to sleep." Donations in all sizes are needed from infant through teen. Donations may be left in the collection box in the Children's Room at Seekonk Library.
The Boston Bruins thanks everyone in advance for donating pajamas to their Annual PJ Drive!
The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) works with the Boston Bruins to coordinate library participation in the drive. Libraries from around the state use the Massachusetts Library System’s delivery service, typically used to send books and other library materials, to send their PJs to area collection locations .
