Central Boulevard Elementary School in the Bethpage Union Free School District continued its tradition of hosting a pajama drive in partnership with Scholastic Book Club.
Each year, students, staff and community members are asked to bring in pajamas during the month of December for children in need. For every set of pajamas contributed, Scholastic matches the donation with a book. This year, the school was able to collect more than 150 pajama outfits for the Family Service League in Huntington.
“It’s a good feeling to help make sure more children will be warm this year,” said second-grade teacher Lauri Holt. “This is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts at Central Boulevard.”
