With the generous help of our sponsors, Pajama Jams holds a series of awareness and collection events as part of our PJ for the Holidays program.  In addition to hosting events to benefit our program, our sponsors placed pajama collection bins in their place of business, and the outpouring of help was nothing short of amazing!  In 2015, our pajama recipients included the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, the Samaritan House For Kidsand students of BF Williams Elementary,  PB Young Elementary, Jaycox Elementary, and Tidewater Park Elementary Schools in Norfolk, VA.
