If it is mandatory that your collection is out of your classroom before the holidays, you must report your collection through the online donation form no later than December 2, 2022. Please note that there is a year-round need for pajamas and books in Pajama Program’s community, and that donations given after the holidays are just as valuable as those given during the holiday season.

For every pair of pajamas donated, Scholastic Book Clubs will donate a brand-new book to Pajama Program to give to a child facing adversity, up to 100,000 books. All books are donated directly to Pajama Program and distributed by them according to the needs of community partners.
