Cradles to Crayons Pajama Drive!

February 1st through March 15th, 2016

PJ DriveThe Morrill Memorial Library is partnering with Cradles to Crayons and the Boston Bruins for the 9th Annual PJ Drive to provide new pajamas for local children in need all across the Commonwealth. We’re asking for new children’s pajamas, all sizes! Please leave them in the donation box on the first floor. Thank you for helping us keep children feeling warm, safe, valued, and ready to learn.

This year you can double your donation simply by donating a pair! An anonymous donor has offered to match* each pair of pajamas with another pair. Please help us to double or triple our donations from last year (82).

*Up to 200 pair.
