Pyjama Drive

children's pyjamas

This year Christmas will be different. Yet in other ways Christmas will be the same. Children will still wake up Christmas morning and rush to see their tree and find their presents underneath it. In the past Maple Grove United Church has generously donated all the children’s pyjamas Kerr Street Mission has asked us to provide. Your Outreach Committee knows that this year many of us will not feel comfortable personally shopping for the pyjamas. So we are asking you to do something you have not done before. Instead of shopping please donate $30 to provide one pair of pyjamas, socks and some food items for one child. If you are able please donate $60 or $90 to provide gifts for two or three children. The Outreach Committee will online order the gifts for the boys and girls in all the necessary sizes and take them to KSM.

Please drop your cheques (noted for the pyjama drive) off in the church lockbox on the brick wall beside the back door of the church or mail them to the church at 346 Maple Grove Drive, Oakville, L6J 4V5. Another option is to go to the bottom of a Maple Grove United Church website page. Click on the “Please donate here” button and choose #9 “Designated for a special purpose – please describe” from the options. Then type in “pyjamas”. This year you will be able to receive a tax receipt for your donations.

We would appreciate receiving the donations by November 15th to allow time to order and receive the pyjamas.Maple Grove is just one of the many churches involved in making Christmas more wonderful for children who otherwise would not have a particularly bounteous Christmas. This year Christmas will be different but at least one thing will be the same. We are confident every child on the list will receive a cozy new pair of pyjamas from our congregation.

    Donating money to the pajama fund is not as easy as has been mentioned. More directions needed.
