Programs:  We provide a steady stream of thousands of new books and pajamas to children in need across the country and to several countries around the world. There are now more than 1200 Receiving Organizations. (children's shelters, group homes and temporary living facilities) on our list. Our pajamas and books arrive at each of these Receiving Organizations regularly. We receive emergency calls for pajamas and books on a daily basis and it is our goal to answer each request with pajamas and books for the children immediately.  

Mission:
Pajama Program MissionThe Need is Great. There are more than 500,000 children in the foster care system in the U.S. and more than 1 million children who are not living with their natural parents. These children have been through great upheaval and trauma, without exception. So many of these children are living in shelters and group homes and too often are shuffled from one temporary home to another. Many of these youngsters 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 and read to them to encourage an early educational experience. They have fallen behind in their reading skills and no longer have access to books to read on a regular basis. They have been removed from school for months at a time with no continuation of their reading practice. Through the Pajama Program, we are contributing to a warmer, more loving and supportive reading environment for these special children.

I love collecting and packing pajamas for this organization, knowing that these children have a new pair of pajamas for the night. I remember every Christmas I would get new pajmams for the Holiday Season. Every Day is Special in the eyes of a child and lets keep letting them know how special they ... more »

I began my journey with the Pajama Program in an odd sort of way. I have my own pet/farm care business and was taking care of the pets belonging to the last Maine Chapter President of the Pajama Program. She was away on vacation and I went by her house to feed and care for her cats. When I got ... more »
