Pajama Program – Creating Good Nights in Not-So-Good Times

The Pajama Program, a nonprofit with reading center locations in New York and Atlanta, wants to provide children from all backgrounds with “Good Nights and Good Days” But how can you adapt a mission that typically requires in-person contact – including going to a reading at their center or at a shelter to receive one-on-one interaction, pajamas, and a new book – during a time in which physical contact is strictly limited? Senior Program Manager Chrissie Martinez and Program Coordinator Jyothi Nair let us in on how the program is raising funds, donating books, and engaging with children nationwide despite the “novel” coronavirus.
