PJs for a good cause

For the second year in a row, volunteers are collecting pyjamas to help kids in need in the community.

For the second year in a row, volunteers are collecting pyjamas to help kids in need in the community.

Karen Pivert and Brenda Vegter started the Christmas PJs drive last year and according to Vegter, had an outstanding response.

“We got PJs, and then some,” she said with a laugh. While many sets of pyjamas were distributed through the Stettler Community Hamper Society in the Christmas Hampers, leftover pyjamas were distributed throughout the year as needed.

That means that this Christmas, the clothing-drive is starting anew.

“We’re asking for donations of boys’ and girls’ pjs in all sorts of sizes,” Vegter said. “If you’re not sure what type to get, we’re accepting money donations, too.”

The sleepwear should be for youth from birth to 18 years of age, and can be dropped off at Old Fashion Candy and Scrapbooking on Main, or Gitzel Krejci Dand Peterson at 5912 51 St. Vegter said both sites will accept pyjamas, but financial donations should only be dropped off at Gitzel Krejci Dand Peterson.

“It’s been a bit slower this year, but as word gets out I know we’ll be able to help out,” Vegter said.
