Hudson Maxim Students Hail Pajama Collection Drive a Success

Elementary school students stepped up to help children in need by collecting donated pajamas and books.

 Nothing says love and comfort like a warm pair of pajamas. You knew it when you were a kid, and the students of Hudson Maxim School know it too. In fact, they used that knowledge to collect 111 new pairs of pajamas and 45 new books to help needy children in Sussex and Morris counties.

Hopatcong Borough Schools Superintendent of Schools Cynthia Randina said the students were part of and effort called The Pajama Project, One Million Good Nights. With partners Scholastic, Carter’s and Sprout, the project has set its sights on providing one million new pairs of pajamas and one million new books to children in need.

To show appreciation to her students, Principal Tracey Hensz allowed the students to wear pajamas on Dec. 23. The kids also were treated to chocolate milk with marshmallows and a visit from a snowman and gingerbread man who read stories and visited with the children.

Randina said having The Pajama Project at Hudson Maxim and seeing the students' successful drive was a holiday gift for the elementary school.

"We are honored to be a part of this very worthwhile campaign," she said.
