Share the Love This Valentine’s Day
Collection will continue through Sunday, February 9
What better way than by providing a toasty pair of new pajamas,
a snugly stuffed animal and a Valentine card to a child living in poverty?
Pajama sizes 18 months to size 16

Sunday School’s collection of (new) PJs, stuffed animals and Valentine cards
will be distributed by Family to Family,
a national hunger and poverty organization based in Hastings.

the collection box, suitably decorated,
is in the lobby of the Society, under the very sparkly poster
Many children living in shelters, or even the profoundly poor living at home,
have never owned a pair of pajamas, sleeping instead in underwear or their
everyday clothes. The bedtime rituals that we take for granted to help our own
children feel special and secure – like cozy clean pj’s and reading bedtime stories
are unknown to many impoverished children.
