Stories and PJs

’Twas days before Christmas and all through the land, public school children were donating PJs — how grand!

Footies with hatchbacks all made out of fleece, were donated — all folded and creased.

Students from PS 225 and PS 119 were feted with cookies and milk, and a storytime treat

And were thanked by Genevieve Piturro, for being so sweet.

Standing O pal Genevieve is the founder of The Pajama Program, a donation drive that, for every pair of PJs donated, donates a book, courtesy of Scholastic Inc. This year, the students collected more than 400 pairs of pajamas through fund raisers and class activities. The PJ program has donated over one million pajamas and books to needy children nationwide since its inception in 2001.
