Pajama day and the kickoff for our annual pajama drive is Thursday, November 7, 2019/
BECC Families, it’s time for the annual Scholastic Reading Club Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive! This is a drive benefiting Pajama Program, a nonprofit organization that provides new pajamas and books to children in need—especially those living in group homes, shelters, foster care, and orphanages. For every pair of pajamas that is donated through the Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive, Scholastic Book Club will donate a brand-new book to Pajama Programs to give kids affected by instability a good night's sleep.
Since 2012, the BECC has collected and donated over 300 sets of pajamas. Each year these pajamas and books are donated to the Council for Social Concern in Woburn.
Our school wants to be a part of this drive so that we can help make a better bedtime for these children. Together we can help the Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive reach even more kids with pj’s and books.
If you and your child are able to participate, please have your child bring in a new pair of pajamas to school by December 11, 2019 The Lucky Ducks have the donation box in front of their room to collect the pajamas to be donated. Teachers will help your child deliver them to the donation box.
Here are some simple guidelines for the pajamas:
Pajamas must be brand-new.
Pajamas in all sizes are needed—from newborn to adult.
Pajamas must be in complete sets or nightgowns.
We are going to kick off this year’s pajama drive with an all school Pajama Day on November 7th. Your child is welcome to wear his or her pajamas to school. All children are encouraged to participate but no one is required.
