Seeking new kids’ PJs for kids in need

Dear CBI family,

hatley-kid-pjs-game-fish-PJAFIFI044Once again, our regional Jewish community — sponsored by the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires and PJ Library — is collecting new pairs of children’s pyjamas for local families served by the Berkshire County office of the MA Dept. of Children and Families. CBI is the collection site for North County.

What this means is: there’s a box in our foyer which has a sign on it indicating that it’s for collecting PJs for kids. It will picked-up during the first week in December. Between now and then, please bring new childrens’ pyjamas (all sizes) and place them in the box. If you’re getting PJs for your own kid and can afford to spring for one more pair, please do.

Last year more than 60 pairs of pyjamas were collected by the Berkshire Jewish community, and local families were so thrilled¬†their kids had warm PJ’s for the winter. As we head into the cold season, imagine what it would be like to see your kid growing out of their PJs and to not be able to afford a few new pairs — and together let’s do what we can to help those families keep their kids warm.

Blessings to all,

Rabbi Rachel
