63 pairs and counting!

The Morrill Memorial Library is partnering with Cradles to Crayons and the Boston Bruins for the 8th Annual PJ Drive to provide new pajamas for local children in need all across the Commonwealth. We’re asking for new children’s pajamas, sizes 4/5T-18/20.

While we have already collected an incredible 63 sets of pajamas, help us to finish strong! We will be accepting donations of new PJs until Monday, March 16th.

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.
