Hoboken Family Alliance Toy & PJ Drive
HFA Toy Drive & Pajama Program to benefit Hudson County Kids
Let’s help those in our community who are in need this holiday season. It will be an opportunity for us to make a difference in a child’s life. In fulfilling the mission of our drives, we hope to provide comfort and love to children in need to help create a warm and nurturing environment for vulnerable youngsters living in difficult circumstances.
Pajama & Book Program
We are joining the Pajama Program to collect new pajamas & new books for homeless and needy children!
By providing pajamas & books, we are helping to create a warm and nurturing bedtime environment for vulnerable children and young adults living under difficult circumstances. Help us to give these children a warm holiday.
The Pajama Program, a 501 (c) (3) charity, provides new pajamas and new books to needy children, many of whom are waiting and hoping to be adopted. Many of these youngsters have been abused or abandoned and in many cases, have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a loving mother or father tuck them in at bedtime. Through the Pajama Program, we hope to contribute to a warmer, more loving environment for children when they are at their most vulnerable. Pajamas need to be new and unused for all sizes, Infant to 17 years of age.
Toy donations can bring a smile to the face of a Hudson County child on Christmas morning. We want this event to bring something special to the children, so we ask that all donated gifts be new and unwrapped (toy age range from infant-17).
All donations, large and small, put some cheer into the holidays for a child who may otherwise not have received any gift at all. The items are often given to families who cannot afford to buy presents, so that the children can open a gift that’s given to them by a loved one, not a charity.
