Beginnings Children Giving Back

Elizabeth Wilcox

An article in the Weston Town Crier is celebrating Beginnings students giving back.

The November 30, 2017 printed version of the local town newspaper notes that Beginnings students have been donating pajamas to the Pajama Program, an organization founded on the belief that every child, no matter the circumstances, has the right to a good night.

The newspaper quotes Beginnings teacher Linda Lee: "We got to talking one day and the kids were saying how important it was that all kids should get to feel cozy and safe at night. I found the program, Pajama Program, and the kids were really excited to get involved."

Lee's classroom calls their school initiative "Pajamas and Pennies" and the newspaper reports that through it, children donate pajama sets and loose change from home for classroom purchases.

At the time of publication, the program had collected 57 pajamas. Lee says that the final number of pajamas was 69 and that the children were delighted to be a part of an initiative that helps other children enjoy a good night.
