Updates and New Year Wishes

 

From your friends at PJ’s for Patients, happy New Year!

As we commence and begin to move through 2017, we would like to thank the many generous people, communities, organizations, and hospital departments who volunteered or organized with us, or who in any other capacity supported us, this past year. In 2016 we reached a new milestone, having delivered more than 2,000 pajamas to children and young adults receiving cancer treatments in hospitals away from home.

We would also like to give a special thanks to Bay Ridge Cares, “an organization of neighbors dedicated to making our community a better place by doing all the good we can, in all the ways we can, for as many as we can”, for collaborating with us in an incredibly successful, community-wide fundraiser! With drop-off locations in six central Bay Ridge spots, the generosity and concern of the community, and the superb organizing power of Bay Ridge Cares, the organization collected a total of 336 pairs of pajamas, which were donated not only to PJ’s for Patients but also to the children and teens of several local domestic violence shelters.

Here’s the jackpot, 336 pairs of children’s and teens pajamas collected by Bay Ridge Cares and its supporters! We are so proud of and grateful for our community!

PJ4P wishes you the healthiest, happiest, and most comfortable 2017. As always, please contact us if you are interested in collaborating with us or learning more!
