The Pajama Program

The Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need nationwide, many of whom are waiting to be adopted. These children live in group homes, shelters, and temporary housing facilities and are shuffled often from one place to another. Many of these children have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a parent tuck them in at bedtime with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story. These two simple gifts of pajamas and books let the children know that someone cares. At the SCC's annual "Pajama Party" held in Dyckman Hall each March, participants wear pajamas, listen to music and perform, and donate new children's pajamas to be distributed to children in need.
