Support Project Pajama

“The children were nestled, all snug in their beds…”

Are you looking for a great way to get your kids involved in giving back this holiday season? Please consider supporting two Wayland moms in providing pajamas for underserved children in Lowell, MA.

5th Annual Project Pajama
Kim Bruno and Giselle Shardlow founded Project Pajama after Kim learned that a high school classmate of hers, who is now a teacher in Lowell, needed help collecting pajamas for her students. Their aim is to provide 350 pairs of children’s pajamas to families in need. They hope to provide warmth and comfort to ensure a better night’s sleep that will lead to a more healthy and productive life.

How to Help: Kim and Giselle are collecting brand-new, unwrapped girls and boys pajamas, sizes 6 to16, from November 21 through December 12. Please place donations of new pajamas in the holiday wrapped boxes outside of their homes or at local participating schools. May we all be a bit warmer this season—whether it is
because of a new pair of pajamas or because of doing a good deed.

Donation Locations

  • Kim Bruno: 1 Pheasant Run
  • Giselle Shardlow: 22 Shaw Drive

What the Children Say

  • “I have never slept in a pair of pajamas.” ~ Fourth-grade girl, jumping for joy over not having to sleep in her clothes again.
  • “Oh my, I’ve never won anything before. Can I try them on?”   ~ Kindergarten boy upon receiving his pajamas.
  • “This is the best day of my life ever!” ~ Second grade girl after receiving her pajamas.

Our 2019 goal is to collect 350 pajamas. Feel free to forward on to anyone who might also be interested.

Thank you so much!
Giselle & Kim
