When it comes to children,

something so simple can mean so much.

Pajama Jams

Helping Kids in our Community One Pair at a Time.

A simple thing like a new pair of pajamas is not so simple for a child in need — especially during the holiday season.  You can make a difference by donating the comfort of new pajamas to children in your community.

Pajama Jams is an organization providing new pajamas to children in need.  Since 2008, over 20,000 children in Hampton Roads, VA and Wilmington, NC received a new pair of pajamas from Pajama Jams.  As the need has grown, so has the need for extended support.  In addition to donating pajamas or becoming a sponsor, please consider a cash donation of any size. Your gift will help us reach more children than ever before, protecting their right to a peaceful, comforting night’s sleep.


Collect Pajamas!

Take the Pajama Pledge and collect new pajamas for Pajama Jams.  Download the Download Pajama Pledge Sheet and start collecting today!!   There are lots of easy ways to collect pajamas!  Here are a few suggestions…

  • Hosting a party? Ask everyone to bring a pair of pajamas
  • Child’s Birthday Party? Ask your child to consider accepting pajamas in lieu of gifts.
  • Host your own Pajama Party — for the Girls Scouts, volleyball team or dance class.
  • Part of a book club or Bunco? Ask each member to bring a pair of new pajamas to your next gathering.

Plus. . . spread the word! You can help spread the word through your workplace, area businesses, neighborhood socials, school, church, and social media.

Donate Pajamas!

Although we distribute pajamas mainly during the holiday season, our organization works year ’round collecting pajamas in order to meet the high demand. Please bring one or more pairs of new pajamas to one of our many drop off locations (children’s size 5T to  Adult size Large).

Community Service Hours

High schoolers: document your time to apply toward community service requirements.  Students can keep track of the hours spent soliciting pledges and collecting new pajamas.  Letters for service hours can be provided.

Donate Funds

Don’t have time to collect or shop for pajamas?  Donate funds, and we will pick out pajamas based on our most needed sizes.
