Please help me support, Andrea Ourada, as she helps bring warm pj’s to local kids this year! Feel free to give what you can and please pass on to anyone who might also help the cause!!
Once my son started school I became active within the school PTA and looking for ways to volunteer and serve the school community. I started my PTA venture as the Clothing Coordinator, making sure the nurse had extra clothes for students if needed. With this position I found out that SMSD has a Clothing Center where anyone living within the school district can go get clothing/shoe items free of charge, no questions asked. The Clothing Center is where I saw firsthand the needs our community has, needs I was oblivious to. Things I took for granted like warm pajamas on cold nights for my son, were items that a lot of kids don’t have. So every year I host a Pajama Drive to benefit ALL school age children in need within the Shawnee Mission School District (whether you go to an SMSD school or not). I’m a firm believer that a good night leads to a good day. My ultimate goal is that no child go to bed cold. I accept donations of brand new (with tags) pajamas and online monetary donations. I provide pajamas from size newborn to youth 16-18. If you’d like more information about how you can help please email me at [email protected]
Christa McAuliffe’s Annual Pajama Drive is going on now through November 17th.
This year all donations to the Pajama Drive will be made through MemberHub.
Please give what you can, any amount helps towards the purchase of the sizes needed most.
