Boston Bruins' PAJAMA DRIVE ends with a record number of PJs for Bolton
Posted March 18, 2017
The Boston Bruins PJ Drive ran from February 1 through March 15, 2017. The library will be collecting new pairs of pajamas for babies, children and teens. Bruins forward P.J. Axelsson and his wife, Siw started the PJ drive during the Boston Bruins 2007-2008 season as a way to give back to their community. The couple collected 1,600 pairs of pajamas for Cradles to Crayons which connects with social service agencies across the state to identify specific children in need.
UPDATE: Bolton residents and community contributed 85 pair of pajamas to the drive this year! Last year we collected 23 and set a goal to double it in 2017. Thanks to you, we exceeded our goal! Thank you, Bolton!
