Boston Bruins Pajama Drive continues through March 15
Seekonk Library has teamed up with the Boston Bruins to participate in the Bruins’ annual pajama drive to benefit DCF Kids and Cradles to Crayons. The PJ Drive’s goal is to collect 10,000 pairs of new pajamas for children and teens in need. “It’s hard to imagine that so many kids and teens don’t know the comforting feeling of putting on PJs before settling down to sleep. We’re happy to be part of an effort to change that” said Sharon Clarke, Youth Services Librarian at Seekonk Public Library.
Seekonk Library’s goal is to collect 100 pairs of new pajamas for babies, children and teens from now through March 15, 2017. Donations may be left in the collection box in the Children’s Room at Seekonk Library.
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 which increases libraries’ ability to participate in the drive.
