The Acushnet Public Library has teamed up with the Boston Bruins to participate in their annual pajama drive to benefit DCF Kids and Cradles to Crayons. The PJ Drive’s goal is to collect 12,000 pairs of new pajamas for children and teens in need.
The Boston Bruins PJ Drive runs through March 159. The library will be collecting new pairs of pajamas for babies, children and teens. The library hopes to collect 75 pairs.
Participating libraries will compete with other organizations for special Bruins prizes including a street hockey clinic with Bruins Mascot Blades and autographed Bruins items.
The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) works with the Boston Bruins to coordinate library participation in the drive. Some libraries from around the state use the Massachusetts Library System’s delivery service typically used to send books and other library materials, to send their PJs to area collection locations which increase libraries’ ability to participate in the drive. PJs collected at the Acushnet Public Library will stay local and will be distributed by our local DCF.
