Pajama Program is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides new pajamas and books. Snuggling up in cozy, new pajamas with their very own new book, these children are given a secure and nurturing “good night” at bedtime. You can help by organizing a drive to gather new pajamas and books for the children who need them most.

Starting a drive:

  1. Pajamas and books need to be new and unused, and the pajamas should be a new, complete set (top and bottoms).
  2. Decide which ages you want to collect for:
    • All ages, infants to 18 years old
    • Infants to 5 years old
    • 6–12 years old
    • 13–18 years old (pajamas up to adult size XXXL)
  3. Identify places where people can drop off or send the new pajamas and books. You can decorate a box (or multiple boxes) with wrapping paper to make it festive. You can have them sent to your home, to work or to a religious or community center that can hold onto the donations until the drive is finished.
  4. Our logo, as well as posters, signs, brochures and invitations, can be downloaded from our website and used by you in the promotion of your drive.
  5. Once the drive is complete, report the donation on our website.
  6. We cannot provide pickup service for donations. However, within 7 days we will contact you with a receiving organization that would love to take your donation. We will give you the contact name and number to arrange for a convenient time for you to drop off it.
