The Toasty Toes Pajama Project
In 2013, we were able to collect and distribute (with the help of our head elf, Nancy) 125 pairs of pajamas and hot chocolate, wrapped with a ribbon. The stories started pouring in of children who were so excited to have their very first pair of new pajamas for Christmas. Can you imagine never having had a brand new pair of pajamas? I knew that heading into 2014, I wanted the project to grow and spread as far and wide as possible. In our second year, we were able to provide 473 (!!!!) children with pajamas, hot cocoa and a book. We had parents reaching out to us asking for a pair for their child and thankfully we didn’t have to turn away a single child.
So, here we are in our third season and we are hoping to make this our best year yet with a goal of 500 pairs of pajamas with 500 pairs of socks. I am asking for your help in this mission. We are collecting pajamas, socks and cash donations to make this possible. All donations will be distributed through local programs in the County and outlying areas. Each pair of pajamas costs us about $5 and every single penny counts! We are lucky enough to already have all our wrapping supplies, tissue and ribbons donated as well as all the hot chocolate.
I would like to ask you as you put your little one to bed tonight to think about how lucky we are that our children have a safe place to sleep and a warm pair of pajamas to wear.
Please join us in helping to reach our goal of creating 5,000 toasty toes and warm hearts in our area.
