Collegewood Joins Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive

WALNUT, CA—This month Collegewood Elementary School first graders are helping children in need through the  "The Great Bedtime Story" pajama drive held in partnership with the Scholastic Book Club and non-profit Pajama Program. 

For every new pair of pajamas donated through December 9, Scholastic will match it with a new book. 

The school collected 102 pairs of pajamas during the two-week fundraiser.

“This is a wonderful way for our first graders to join in the spirit of the season, and it shows the caring and dedication of our first grade teachers Jane Smith, Liz Dickerson, Laura O’Donnell and Lisa Welch,” said Principal Carolyn Wills.

The holiday gift of a good night’s sleep and a sweet bedtime story will be now be delivered to 102 children living in group homes, shelters, foster care, and orphanages.
