A few months ago one of our staff said, “ Every child needs new jammies for Christmas morning!”
Facts! The following week our organization began collecting and sorting pajamas, sleep essentials and more.
T’was after a quick trip to Target, when all thorough His Haven, PJ’s were placed on hangers where they wouldn’t long be stayin’!
The jammies were all hung on the racks with care, in anticipation of all the kids that would soon be there!
We are making this an annual event… you won’t want your child to miss it!
We are thrilled to share that His Haven served over 70 Elmira children during our first annual PJ Drop. Children from infant to eighteen came through our doors to shop at our free event and left with new pajamas. Some even selected slippers, socks and handmade sleeper quilts to complement their cozy, new threads!
One single mom arrived with her five children after recently relocating from the South and we supplied them with winter coats as well. Our eventful evening did not stop there!
During our PJ Drop, our delightful volunteers from Penn Ave Methodist were serving a scrumptious baked ham Christmas dinner in our dining hall. Over 100 community members were blessed by their labor of love.
A TREMENDOUS thank you to our staff, volunteers and donating community partners!
Once again, Elmira, giving looks good on you!
