'Jammies for Families' was born out of the effort of two friends that asked Halton Compassion Society how they could best help out during the holiday season. They were told that new underwear, socks, and pyjamas were among the least donated items for their clients.
After the first year, they expanded to Niagara, and the charity that benefits here is Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold.
All the donations we gather here, stay in this Region, just like they do in Halton.
Last year in total, we collected 840 pairs of socks, 324 pairs of underwear, 145 sets of Adult jammies, and 400 kids jammies.
Dykstra Brothers would like to support this great effort and so, we have a collection bin set up at our office and we'd love your help to fill up with socks, underwear, and pyjamas. The bin will be here from November 22nd to December 14th. And then the contents will be distributed.
