A simple thing like a new pair of pajamas is not so simple for a child in need — especially during the holiday season. Now you can make a difference by donating the comfort of new pajamas to children in your community.
Pajama Jams is a 501(c)(3) charity providing new pajamas to children in need. To date, more than 6,200 Hampton Roads children have received help from Pajama Jams! We collect pajamas throughout the year and distribute them during the holiday season. With the generous help from our sponsors, Pajama Jams holds a series of awareness and collection events as part of our PJ for the Holidays program. Our generous sponsors also put collection bins in their place of business. 2015 recipients will include the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, the Samaritan House, For Kids, BF Williams Elementary, PB Young Elementary, Jaycox Elementary, and Tidewater Park Elementary.
