The Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive

Last year, classrooms collected and donated more than 93,000 pairs of pajamas. Scholastic Book Clubs matched each pair with a book donation made directly to the Pajama Program National Headquarters. The pajamas and books were then distributed by Pajama Program to children in need throughout the country.

This year, we have a new goal: 125,000 pairs of pajamas!
Help us get there!
