National Charity League is kicking off its annual Pajama Drive for Cradles to Crayons. Every winter, C2C partners with the Bruins to collect pajamas for area children in low income and homeless situations. We are collecting new children’s pajamas in any size from baby to big kid. Consider having your children help choose pajamas so they can make a connection to helping a child in need. The drive starts on Monday at Alcott and continues until March 15th. New pajamas can be dropped in the collection box in the Alcott lobby. Thank you!
