"Jammies and Joy" Newborn Pajama Drive
(Collection will take place in January)
Ainsley G, a caring and compassionate Grade 5 student, heard about an urgent need for newborn pajamas while volunteering at the Foundation for Foster Children in Winter Park. Ainsley approached Ms. Moon with her idea for a newborn pajama clothing drive, "Jammies and Joy." The pajamas collected will be donated to foster babies born into drug-dependent families. These little ones need new pajamas to wear from the hospital to the DCF office to their new foster homes. 

For those who wish to donate, please bring in brand new pajamas to fit newborns and babies up to 6 month-olds. Collection will occur in January, when students return from Winter Break. Donation bins will be located at the front desk.
