Get your pj’s on! Tomorrow, September 24th, hundreds of community members and volunteers will be walking on Brooklyn Bridge in their pajamas in an effort to help underprivileged children receive warm pajamas for the winter and books.
Pajama Program is a national organization that is dedicated to delivering new, warm pajamas and books to underprivileged children and teens. Many of the children live in shelters or group homes and have been shuffled from one place to another; many have been abused or neglected, without ever getting the simple opportunity of having their own, brand-new clean pajama and a bedtime story – something our own kids take for granted.
This Saturday, participants in the Sleep Walk will have the opportunity to join the fundraiser as an individual or part of a team, as they walk across Brooklyn Bridge in their pajamas. Following the walk, Pajama Program will be hosting a Bedtime Bash where participants will enjoy food, beverages, a magician, face painting and music. We think it sounds terrific. Grab your kids and register for the sleep walk!
When: September 24th, 2016 at 3pm to register. Walk starts at 3:30pm
Bedtime Bash: 4:45-6:30pm
Where: Brooklyn Bridge Entrance
Bedtime Bash: Borough Hall, 209 Joralemon Street, Brooklyn.
