Fall Service Project 2012

29 Oct

Project PJ was started by MomTime’s own Kim Hicks and we’re excited to contribute as a group this year. The Hicks’ family tradition is to open new pajamas on Christmas Eve.  Project PJ extends this tradition to the kids at Denver Children’s Home.

Project PJ collects new pajamas for kids aged 10-18 who live at Denver Children’s Home.  These abused and neglected children will receive our gifts of new pajamas to brighten their Christmas.

Please bring new PJs to the MomTime meeting on November 30.  Target and Old Navy are great places to find PJs that teenagers would like.  Here is a guideline for sizing: buy kids size 10-12 and 14-16 if you want to buy for a child that is age 10-14 and buy adult size small, medium or large if you want to buy for a child that is age 14-18. Sizes will vary depending on brand and store so just do your best to get something that will fit a child aged 10-18.

To get an even distribution of sizes, our Service Project team (Haley, Kim, Martina) have set up this sign-up sheet to keep track of who is buying what size: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0448A5A69-momtime

If you would like to collect pajamas from your friends and neighbors, your child’s school, gym, church, your office, etc please use the flyer (click to download a PDF) to advertise Project PJ on the collection box.

On November 30th at MomTime we will hear from the Development and Communications Coordinator from Denver Children’s Home.  We will also collect all the new PJs (they need to be in their original packaging and/or with tags attached) to send back to Denver Children’s Home with her.  Kids in MomTime childcare will make cards or ornaments to add some holiday cheer to our care package too!

We will also donate 50% of our sales generated from the MomTime Bake Sale to Denver Children’s Home.   The bake sale will be on December 9th at 11:30am at Montview Church (immediately following morning service). Haley will create another sign-up for donating your homemade or store bought treats. Stay tuned!
