Scholastic Reading Club has more than matched classroom pajama donations with nearly
900,000 books given directly to the Pajama Program National Headquarters.
The books are distributed by Pajama Program to children in need throughout the country.
The locations and timing of those book donations are determined by Pajama Program
based on the specific needs of their Receiving Organizations.
Here’s What
We Need
  • Brand-new pajamas in all sizes, from newborn to adult.
  • Pajamas must be complete sets—a top and bottom or an appropriate nightgown.
  • Pajamas for all seasons, but especially for the winter months.
Pajama Program
Pajama Program is a nonprofit organization that provides new books and new pajamas to children in need, many of whom are waiting and hoping to be adopted. Since 2001, Pajama Program has donated over one million pajamas and books to children nationwide.
