Collegewood Elementary first-graders joined The Great Bedtime Story pajama drive held in partnership with the Scholastic Book Club and nonprofit Pajama Program.
For every new pair of pajamas donated, Scholastic will add a new book. Collegewood collected 102 pairs of pajamas during the two-week fundraiser.
“This is a wonderful way for our first-graders to join in the spirit of the season, and it shows the caring and dedication of our first-grade teachers Jane Smith, Liz Dickerson, Laura O’Donnell and Lisa Welch,” said Principal Carolyn Wills.
The holiday gift of a good night’s sleep and a sweet bedtime story will be now be delivered to 102 children living in group homes, shelters, foster care and orphanages.
