Amherst Senior Center Collecting New Pajamas & Books

COLLECTION RUNS SEPTEMBER 1 – OCTOBER 31

The Amherst Senior Center is once again collecting new, unused pajamas (sizes infant to 17 years old) and new children’s books for The Pajama Program. The collection runs from September 1, 2016 through October 31, 2016. All items collected at the Amherst Senior Center will be delivered to The Buffalo Chapter of The Pajama Program who then distributes the items through agencies in the Buffalo area including Cornerstone Manor, Baker Victory Services, Child and Family Services and the Salvation Army.

The Pajama Program benefits area children that are living with their families below the poverty level, in desperate need of food, clothing and shelter and others are waiting to be adopted. Most of these children have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a parent tuck them in a bedtime with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story. For more information about The Pajama Program, please visit www.pajamaprogram.org.

The Amherst Center for Senior Services is located at 370 John James Audubon Parkway in Amherst, behind the Audubon Library.
