The Students Concerned for the Needy (SCN) Service Group from Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School are once again collecting New Pajamas on behalf of “The Pajama Program”, a 501 ( c) (3) charity that provides warm pajamas to children in need. Collected pajamas will be distributed to Receiving Organizations that care for homeless and vulnerable children within Union County.
Community members and groups may donate new pajamas for a child, boy or girl, ages infant through age 17. Please keep all tags on PJ’s. SCN’s PJ Drive will run through November 7th, 2012. Coldwell Banker Agents from the Westfield East Office, 209 Central Avenue will, once again, collect PJ’s to help SCN increase their PJ totals by simultaneously running a Drive in their office.
Your generous donation of a pair of new pajamas will help to create a warm and nurturing bedtime environment for youngsters living under difficult circumstances. While the PJ Drive is in progress, PJ’s may be brought to the Athletic Office at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School located in the front of the building at 667 Westfield Road, Scotch Plains, 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Please visit the Pajama Program website www.pajamaprogram.org to learn more and to see for yourself that the need is great! Also, to learn more about Students Concerned for the Needy (SCN) and their ongoing community outreach, upcoming programs, projects and volunteer opportunities visit www.scnonline.org
SCN wishes to thank the community, in advance, for helping them help the children. Your donation will provide warm pajamas on those cold fall and winter nights assuring that fewer children in Union County go to bed cold at bedtime this year.
