Pajamas for Peace hopes to become a part of the change process in finding solutions to end poverty, homelessness and school violence.
Pajamas for Peace has partnered with Haven House Bridges a homeless shelter and Human Options a domestic violence shelter to bring comfort to children and families in need. With every purchase of a pajama you will be providing another pajama to children and families at these organizations through our buy one, help one and “Be the change” initiative. To learn more about our Partners and the impact they are making in our world today, read more about their company missions below.
Meet Our Partners
Haven House/Bridges Provides emergency housing for homeless families in Suffolk County, New York through a contract with the Suffolk County Department of Social Services (SCDSS).
Haven House/Bridges Operates congregate emergency housing. Staff are available 24 hours per day. The primary objective is to assist homeless families to find and maintain permanent housing.
Human Options is a domestic violence agency whose mission is to ignite social change by educating Orange County to recognize relationship violence as an issue that threatens everyone, advocating for those affected by abuse, extending a safe place for victims and empowering survivors on their journey of healing.
Pajamas for Peace began with a Pajama drive in a community setting and at schools to honor the children and staff who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary. After collecting Pajamas, we went into schools and created Pajama gift packages with each child so they could be a part of the giving process. We then took these creatively designed packages and donated them to children and families at a homeless shelter.
Our mission was simple. We wanted to teach and promote a message of giving and peace. The Pajamas for Peace Project makes a special delivery of gift packages created by children to a homeless shelter every year on December 14 in memory of the victims of Sandy Hook, to teach and promote peace and to inspire philanthropy and community service in our youth.
