Pajamas Collected
in 2017!
The 9th Annual Great Bedtime StoryPajama Drive

Since 2009, classrooms nationwide have collected and donated over 600,000 pajamas to at-risk children through Pajama Program, and Scholastic Book Clubs has matched that number by donating nearly one million books.

This year, we are starting early! Our goal is to donate an additional 100,000 pajamas and match them with 100,000 brand-new books!

How Your Class Can Donate Pajamas
  1. Encourage your students and their parents to donate brand-new pajamas with this parent letter (also available in Spanish).

  2. Collect pajamas and submit the online donation form by Wednesday, December 13, 2017. (You must REPORT the donation by this date. However, pajama delivery does not have to happen by this date.)

  3. Within seven days of submitting your online donation form, you will receive an email from the Pajama Program chapter president in your area with more instructions on how to deliver your collected pajamas to a receiving location near you.

  4. Print a congratulations certificate for your class!

A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Pajamas!

Teachers: share your pajama drive photos on social and tag us! #ScholasticBookClubs

Scholastic Book Clubs will donate 100,000 brand-new books to Pajama Program at the end of this campaign, helping to give children a warmer good night.
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
Every child has the right to a loving good night, complete with new, clean pajamas and a comforting bedtime story. Pajama Program offers at-risk children the unconditional, magical gifts of pajamas and books so that they can enjoy the greatest benefit of a loving bedtime and peaceful good night: a fulfilling good day. After all, good nights are good days.

Good Night Bill of Rights
The Good Night Bill of Rights was created by Pajama Program as a way of explaining the importance of their mission. Its five simple principles help Pajama Program and communities everywhere deliver a loving bedtime and quality good night’s sleep to children everywhere. As classrooms across the country join in the Great American PJ Drive, we thought it might be helpful to read the Good Night Bill of Rights as a way of helping students understand the importance of what they are doing and that they are helping to ensure the happiness and well-being of so many at-risk children.
