ANNUAL BOSTON BRUINS PJ DRIVE
Annual Boston Bruins PJ Drive
For the month of February, Cradles to Crayons®, the Boston Bruins, Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, and Wonderfund are coming together with organizations in your community to collect new pajamas for local children living in low-income and homeless situations. While we cannot gather in person, we can still collect pajamas as a community. By supporting us with a PJ Drive, you will directly supply new pajamas to the children who need them most so they can stay warm in their own homes. Register through our form to get more information on hosting a PJ Drive with us.
PJ Drive Toolkit:
- Five Steps to an Amazing PJ Drive!: a step by step guide to hosting a successful drive

How to donate this year:
For the month of February, pajama donations can be mailed to or dropped off at our Giving Factory, located at 281 Newtonville Avenue, Newton, MA 02460. If you are shipping pajamas and see that they will not arrive within the month of February, have no worries! Cradles to Crayons collects and distributes pajamas all year long.
What we are collecting:
We are looking for brand new pajamas, appropriate for all seasons, from sizes 2T through adult medium. Please do not give pajamas that include any family or holiday references, and refer to our Quality = Dignity guidelines. Our most needed sizes are:
- Girls: 2T, 3T, 4T/5T (child xs), 14/16 (child xl/adult s), 18/20 (child xxl/adult m)
- Boys: 14/16 (child xl/adult s), 18/20 (child xxl/adult m)
Why are pajamas so critical for the families we serve?
“I work with a family of four, one single mom and three kids seven, five, and four. They have been homeless almost all their life. I remember once their mother said ‘this is the first time in their life that they have pajamas and are supposed to change before bedtime, they are very excited about it…’”
–Roza Khorshidi, MFT Clinician
“During this time of the coronavirus, we are still continuing to see well children in the pediatric department at the health center. Though… we have adapted the necessary masks in providing care. Many of our families are struggling due to no daycare and for many, no current employment. They appreciate anything we can provide. Your generous donation is appreciated by out team and the families we care for.”
–Pediatric Team, Lynn Community Health Center
