Boston Bruins Annual PJ Drive
February 15 - March 30
Seekonk Library has teamed up with the Boston Bruins to participate in the Bruins’ annual pajama drive to benefit DCF Kids and Cradles to Crayons. Seekonk Library's goal is to collect 130 pairs of pajamas for children and teens in need between February 15 - March 30. The pj's will be distributed to children in Massachusetts who "don’t know the comforting feeling of putting on PJs before settling down to sleep." All donations of new pajamas are gratefully accepted but there is a particular need for pajamas for older children (sizes 6+) and teens. Donations may be left in the collection box in the Children's Room at Seekonk Library. The Boston Bruins thank everyone in advance for donating pajamas to their 15th Annual PJ Drive! The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) works with the Boston Bruins to coordinate library participation in the drive.
