The Missions Ministry team is partnering with Christian Education to host a Pajama and Book Drive this Lenten season at St. Paul's. The drive will collect brand new pajamas and an age appropriate bedtime book for kids in need. We are partnering with U-46 and two Elgin elementary schools. Our goal is to donate brand new pajamas and new books for 30 local students in need. Sizes and ages will be ready at the Ash Wednesday service on Wednesday, February 14th.
We were inspired by the New York based Pajama Program's Good Night Bill of Rights: "Every child has the right to wear fresh, clean pajamas to bed and to enjoy a bedtime story that fires their imagination. Every child has the right to feel valued and validated as a human being. Every child has the right to a good night and a good day."
