Our Mission is Simple: to Bring Comfort to Children in their Time of Need.

Our Recipients ~ Our Successes

Pajama Jams is an organization providing new pajamas to children in need.  Since 2008, 12,000 children in Hampton Roads, VA and Wilmington, NC have received pajamas from Pajama Jams.  As the need in our area has grown, so has the need for extended support.  Starting with this year’s campaign, Pajama Jams has increased our goal to helping 30,000 children for the 2022 Holiday season!  In addition to hosting pajama collection events and/or serving as a pajama collection location, we ask you to consider a cash donation of any size. Your direct gift will help us reach more children than ever before, protecting their right to a peaceful, comforting night’s sleep.

We have donated to children throughout Hampton Roads and Wilmington via various programs:

  • The Housing Resource Center, Virginia Beach
  • The Samaritan House
  • ForKids
  • BF Williams Elementary, PB Young Elementary, Jaycox Elementary, and Tidewater Park Elementary School in Norfolk, VA.

The out-pouring of help in our community for this project is unrivalled.  Our sponsors truly help make it happen by hosting events throughout the year.  From the Girl Scouts, the Norfolk Admirals, Whole Foods Market Virginia Beach, InletFitness, and The Children’s Museum, to list a few, we are grateful for the effort put forth in helping children in need right here in our community.  Thank you to everyone involved, for your community spirit, your generosity and for the countless hours you donated to make this project a success.
